Yellowstone DIary 2019

August 10, 2019 The “Whistling hare”

Every wildlife photographer has their image bucket list. Usually it contains the more difficult animals to photograph. On the top of those lists are often the Wolverine followed by Lynx, Wolf, Grizzly and , of course, the Pika.

The little Pika lives in the high mountains on talus slopes with his friend the Marmot.

He is cousins with the rabbit rather than squirrels and other rodents. He is a fast little sucker and my camera had a hard time focusing before he would scurry away. He gathers the plants he likes and stores a warehouse full for winter.
