Feb. 1 – tomorrow is Groundhog Day… our backyard woodchuck hole has reappeared as a melted spot in the snow.
A couple of squirrels were doing a slow nose-to-tail chase up and down the trees. Two males competing for territory? A couple of young’uns frolicking in the snow? Or could it be…? OH! Suddenly we know. Freddy and Frederica are copulating before our very eyes. Now Freddy is smoking a cigarette.
Spring is around the corner. The cycle of life continues.
