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.

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.
