That's a real cute pic!
Now. Either he's off to meet his girlfriend;
He's just bought a new lens, and he's on his way home to tell his wife!
But I suspect he's gather food for the coming winter?
Thanks for sharing.

Great shot! 100-400+TC?

I wish I had already my dSLR and 100-400 when I was up there :o

I did not use the TC, just used the 100-400mm lens. These little guys are curious and once you settle into the boulder field they come right in. I had a couple of them within 12-inches of me. A lot of fun! :D

Plan another another trip and bring the new camera gear. ;)

Thanks to all for looking.

Great shot.

I love seeing and hearing Pikas when I'm out hiking. You're right about their curiousity if you just sit still and wait for them. Sadly they're declining a bit around here, or so it seems.

Cheers, Shayne

Thanks Herc, Sorry to hear about the decline in pika in your area. From what I have read they are fragile creatures and have a short life span.

Thanks for stopping by.

Astounding! Your picture took my breath right away (though happily not for too long). I have to go back and look again.

This is brilliant. I don't actually know what half the animals and bugs are that are posted on here because we dont seem to have a lot of them here in the UK but they are so cute!!

Hi, thanks for looking. This little pika is really active and is constantly on the go. They are closely related to the rabbit. I like to refer to them as boulder bunnies. Really a lot of fun to watch and photograph.
