Groundhog
Photographer: Stephanie Shipkowski
Location: Bellefonte Rail Trail, State College, PA
Story: 
While on a walk in March 2011, I saw this groundhog disappear into its burrow on a hillside. I stuck around a few minutes to see if there was more to watch. I was rewarded when the groundhog made several trips in and out gathering dried leaves, including this mouthful, presumably to spruce up its sleeping chamber.
