I'm trying to catch up on posting photos from this summer. As evidence of how much I've fallen behind, these are from an early June visit to Yellowstone.
"While the other chipmunks begged for trifling bits of peanuts and cashews, Alfred hatched a plot to make off with the tourists' entire lunch."
The ground squirrels just off the Beaver Pond Trail near Mammoth Hot Springs seemed kind of fascinated (or perhaps just wary) with having a photographer.
Word of a stranger travels fast in a small squirrel town.
These rodents can also be "Take the high ground squirrels" when the occasion warrants.
I'm not sure if all herons look this hippy-ish.
