Fun Friday: G-hog Day!

Today’s post features 3 images I captured through my back window, here at my Lake of the Ozarks (Missouri) home.

As I worked on a photo studio I am setting up, getting ready for Monarch butterfly photography, I caught some movement out the back window. After seeing the grasses/weeds/wildflowers moving swaying back and forth quite quickly, this little head poked up … a groundhog was busy foraging on greens in his salad buffet! I managed to get a few images (through the rear window and screen):

After he got hiss fill of plants, he quickly waddled out of the foliage and across the graveled parking lot … probably back to his den for a siesta!

I’ll have to keep watch for his next visit to the salad buffet!
