Baby groundhog gives mom a kiss

This photo just warmed our hearts! We love the story behind it too. Photographer Larry Keller writes, "For the past six or eight years, we have had a family of groundhogs under our tractor shed... On May 26th, the mother brought her litter of five out into the yard for the first time." And he captured this wonderful moment of interaction between one of the babies and the mother. (Don't worry if you find yourself making squee noises; we did too.)
