This is actually up on the dry farm, not my garden, but I wish you could see the size of this gopher.
I was also surprised that it didn't run from us. When we saw this guy (gal?) the head was down in the ground and the bum was sticking out. The Farmer gently touched his bum with his shoe expecting him to run down the hole, but instead he came out, turned around and just looked at us. Very strange.
All the kids got to come over and get a really close look at him, before he eventually turned around and started digging again. It's not often you get to see a gopher close-up, so we snapped a shot.
