A female groundhog moves closer to investigate the camera.

This groundhog was raised in captivity and is part of a wildlife education program. From her, people get to learn about these reclusive creatures, who are the largest members of the squirrel family native to Canada.

Taken at the Muskoka Wildlife Center near Orillia, Ontario, Canada; using a Canon Digital Rebel with an 18-55mm lens.

I am an amateur photographer living in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada.

I enjoy photographing the wonders of the world around me; whether that means capturing images of animals and wildlife, scenic natural landscapes, or man-made wonders.

I travel all over Canada in pursuit of this passion and my dream is to one day be able to do this full-time.

Thank you for your interest in my work,
Alyce Taylor
