Remember: only one image each week!Happy last Wednesday of July, Nikon people. Something about the big snowy winter we had here on the US east coast, or perhaps something about the temperate spring ... I don't know. But we have had a very successful crop of ground hogs this year. Yes, woodchucks. Whistle-pigs. Marmota monax. The land beaver. They're driving my dogs crazy, and have excavated an entire new line for the DC-area metro system. I haven't felt much of an urge to photograph them, so it's all the worse that the one I'm showing here is a mediocre image. But this guy caught me off guard, some 20 feet up an oak tree, reaching over to strip leaves off of an adjacent mulberry. I've never seen one climb so high. It's the newly discovered Eastern Arboreal Tree Hog. Used your Nikon gear to capture any mundane creatures doing unusual things? Share a photo!
