When your brother gets on your last nerve.

.

Two baby woodchucks showed up for apples yesterday. ( we put them out for the deer but these little guys are beating them to it )

.

.

The chuck on the right seemed to be annoying his brother with his close proximity.

.

.

Before long they were squabbling.

.

.

And a sibling scuffle ensued.

.

.

Left woodchuck held his ground, as well as his apple.

.

.

And right woodchuck was forced to step aside.

.

.

Family.

What are ya gonna do?

Woodchuck dining.

.

The brothers are still with us.

Getting so fat I can hardly tell them from their mother these days.

Although how you get fat from eating lettuce I’m sure I don’t know.

I never tire of watching these little scutters eat.

And the fact the two remaining siblings still stick close together makes me smile.

They don’t always get along….

And have been known to tussle over a prime carrot slice now and then…..

But you rarely see one without the other.

Am I jealous the brothers are able to go out to eat and be served tasty meals?

Well, maybe a little.

Deer me.

 

Okay, if you insist.

I caught a couple of nice shots of our old doe in the field.

I don’t know how many seasons she’s seen, and the poor thing didn’t even blow her winter coat this year.

But she comes for dinner every night.

And brings her kids.

Whose little Frankenstein nubs always make me chuckle.

Everyone gets along well.

Except this one.

Who sticks his tongue out at woodchucks.

I guess everyone has a rude child once in a while.
