Yesterday while I was sitting in the back yard reading, four baby armadillos came up from the canyon behind our house. They were digging and chomping up grubs and were totally oblivious to me. I photographed them from just a couple feet away as they dug and chomped.
It was just amazing. We’ve had the occasional armadillo in the yard before, and I’ve even managed to get a good photo of one before. But I’ve never seen babies before, and never had the chance to be so close without disturbing.
