β€œIs it spring yet? Safe to come out?” I spotted this young 13-lined ground squirrel on the outskirts of the refuge. I’m pretty sure he was one of last year’s babies because instead of dashing off like a smart adult he let me have a photo session with him for about a half hour and seemed quite curious about me. But definitely, seeing these guys come out yesterday AND seeing one wooly bear caterpillar definitely says β€œspring is coming”! (I got down on my belly on the ground for our photo shoot πŸ˜‚) β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” Do you want your photo featured?

Thank you Josh @lichter.photography.outdoor for sharing this wonderfully moody shot of a bison at the refuge. This so perfectly captures that mood we all have as winter ends and we wait for spring to show us some green!
