Wintry weather 2014
Canadian ground hog day
Marmotte is out!
Marmotte is the french name for ground hog.
Yes finally in action she came out in the field to show her nose. While resting after an hour of snowshoewing my sister and I sunbathing on the balcony discussing about the missing plane, the dogs suddenly spotted a black animal on the snow and there it was going along to hide again. However this being said she saw her shadow. It was the perfect day for that. Yes! There is hope after all that freezing week where temperature was -30 all week man this is good news after all.
I ran inside grab the camera and ran after her. DIdn't want to scare her because at this time it is very critical for the ground hog. I don't think its my usual ground hog as this one appear to be quite fat for this first outing. It was veyr difficult to film the dogs in the back were barking and the zoom was focussing on the branches.
2 weeks give or take...
Spring will be here.
Last year it was on the 16 of march when she came out.
With all do respect to those missing... there is hope!
