Saw a few Columbian Ground Squirrels at Logan Pass in Glacier National Park, Montana. Their tail is relatively small compared to other squirrel species. These were so cute and not shy at all. When they looked at me, I could sense they were trying to say "You should not feed the bear. It's ok. I am not a bear".

Critique and comment are welcome.

Thanks for the kind comment Steve, Maureen. It's good to finally blow the dust off my Bigma and take it out again after being idle for months (me, not the lens :lol:). I think the Glacier trip kind of revived my interest in wildlife photography. I'm glad.
