Sometimes You Share

In this case it was sharing even when you don’t really want to:

ISO 400 f/5.6 1/60 135mm

I can assure you that this prairie dog was not happy about the idea of having to share.

Critter I Couldn’t Get Close To

This prairie dog:

ISO 640 135mm f5.6 1/200

That is about as close as I could get.

ISO 640 135mm f/5.6 1/60

A prairie dog action shot!

Part of the reason I couldn’t get any closer was there was a possum that was also wandering around nearby.  Actually, it wasn’t the possum as much as it was the woman who pretty much lost her mind when she saw the possum.  She was kind-of bouncing up and down waving at it, yelling at no one in particular, “it’s a possum!”  That was pretty much the signal to the prairie dogs that underground was a good place to be.
