Happy Groundhog Day, y'all!
To celebrate please view our New York groundhogs over in The New York Times' City Room (or just pick up a print version of the paper).
I find it rather funny, but mostly very nice, that Vince and I both have a groundhog picture in the article. It's not like we specialize in rodent photography. But, Go, Team Groundhog! Thanks to Marielle Anzelone (NYC Wildlfower Week) for alerting us to the need for groundhog images. We are very pleased they made the cut.
Of course, the photo at the top of the Time's article is terribly ugly. Taken by the man who is passionate about beautiful landscapes. The close up groundhog, looks mean, too. That was Staten Island, last May* - you can see more creatures spotted on that trip in the link.
I photographed this groundhog in Green-Wood late last summer, and we hope to see him/her again.
In other news...Oh, wait. There's no other news. Sorry.
But is there a groundhog equivalent of New Brunswick stew?
Just thought I'd ask.
** Turns out this groundhog can be christened. I name him...Garfinkel: see Frank's post.
