Babies!

 

First there were woodchuck babies, then catbird babies (although that didn’t end well) , a quick glimpse of a fox baby, and fawns! Finally… fawns.

But now?

We have skunk babies!!

 

 

 

Simply too much cuteness.

 

 

Adorable little critters!

I wasn’t able to film or photograph the funniest part because it was too dark, and that’s a shame because the husband and I had tears in our eyes from laughing so hard.

Our deer came up to feed and those three little fellas chased her all over the yard. In a line… one, two, three… like a little skunk locomotive.

For 20 straight minutes they wouldn’t let her near the food, no matter how she tried.

To heck with guard dogs.

Get a skunk.

Warning…  woodchuck cuteness ahead.

Yes, I’m afraid so.

The babies are still sleeping on our deck.

As well as still slightly off center when eating.

And yes, momma chucker is still in dire need of support undergarments.

But this is new a feeding position….

And this gives me cause to wonder if woodchucks really do chuck wood.

But the best parts lately are the wars.

Mock battles between the babies.

Serious cuteness!

 

 

 

Funny little scampers.

I could watch them all day…

 

Baby chucker update.

 

What…

You thought I’d run out of cute baby woodchuck pictures?

 

 

No, they’re still here.

And still adorable.

And various baby woodchucks just looking too damned cute shots for days, okay weeks, to come.

There’s even woodchuck baby I’m too  fat  fluffy to take a bath without falling over videos.

 

 

 

 

Which, btw…. took me two and half hours to upload to YouTube with our slow as molasses internet connection.

A little appreciation would not be unwelcome.

 

 

That’s better.

 

 

 

Babies!

 

Remember the dandelion eating woodchuck I posted about a while back?

We’ve discovered she lives under our barn.

And yes, she’s a she because…

She has babies!

Baby chuckers… can I get an awwwww?

They’re just too cute.

Four in total …but I rarely see them together long enough to get a photograph.

Three is the most I’ve captured so far.

Sweetness!

Here’s one trying to hide under my iron garden bird.

This little one seems to like our back deck.

 

IMG_4887

 

You can hear him scurrying for cover under the grill… then catch him checking to see if the coast is clear.

This looked like trouble…

But after a few nibbles, he decided he didn’t like geraniums…which was good news for me.

 

 

 

I hate to tell you, but this probably won’t be the last of the baby chucker pics.

You’ve been warned.
