camera5 ~FEBUARY 2013 Photo of the Month Contest Entry Thread~

This is a very SHORT month! For many of us right now, it just looks white outside, but Puxatawny Phil gave his sign that a warmer than usual spring will follow. Yea!

Every year since I posted it to Flickr seven years ago, my very cute "Groundhog up a Tree" gets a spike in viewers around Groundhog Day. It has now had 7,221 views and is often re-blogged with and without permission. We have many groundhogs around here, but this was the only one I ever saw way up a tree, obviously scared of something and cheeping away. When we returned an hour later, it was down, safely I hope!

Maybe someone up there can change your 2012 to a 2013.

Very nice, Lib.

I'm glad I can still appreciate the beauty of snow...I'm not a winter person, but have begun to develop more of an appreciation since we bought our two acres. Your picture reminds me that winter is not all bad.

"Now I need to go out and take photos!" Noooooooo..... don't do that. I've got a 50/50 chance at winning right now and I'm a book whore!!!! Just kidding....not about being a book whore but about you not posting any photos. Go for it.... you're doing excellent taking bird photos!!! You'd be a shoe in if you posted some photos of the birds enjoying your suet!!!!
