Waterton - Ground Squirrel

Taken on the hill next to the Prince of Wales Hotel in Waterton Lakes National Park. It was really challenging to get a picture...my camera does 12x digital zoom. I'd snap a picture, walk forward, snap a picture, walk forward, repeat until the little guy gave a squeak and ducked into his hole :-) You can see more of my photos on Flickr - http://www.flickr.com/photos/calzephyr - due to the humidity and haze, a lot of the photos need editing, but they'll come eventually. Or hey, add me as a contact and I'll add you back.

I so love these little guys, nice catch.

Artist Reply: Thanks Sharon! They are so adorable and curious. This one is much darker/grayer than the tan ground squirrels that are in the city.
