Still wandering at lunch yesterday, I saw Mr. Woodchuck next to his hole under this rock. Pic # 1.

Then I walked out of its sight around the rock, knowing that it would be curious, and sure enough, its head popped over the rock to check me out. Got that too.They're fun to watch and sometimes predictable. By then I had to scoot back to work .

Can't wait to retire and do this all the time.Cheers, Dan

Inquisitive woodchucks and inquisitive photographers are a great combination. Imagining your encounter/taking the shots was fun.

Thanks for the feedback guys.Jeff, these guys are common as dirt here in Eastern Ontario and most people overlook them. This example is of an older chuck, as witnessed by the lighter coloured fur. Sorta like grey hair. Cheers, Dan
