I was out in the yard this morning trying to spot some warblers when the ground hog came waddling by.
I couldn't believe it stopped right in front of me and sat down. I was moving very slowly trying to raise the camera up. He/she was almost too close to get the lens to focus well. I figured if I moved it was gone so I got what I could.
All of a sudden as if it realized I was there, it took off through the woods. I was curious and checked and supposedly they do have good eyesight so maybe it was just checking me out. Regardless of the reason it stopped, I appreciated the chance for a good shot.
