Tiny Critters

As I mentioned in my last post I still have some images from my trip out west that I hadn’t shared yet. The ones that are left are all of animals! I thought I’d start with tiny ones and work my way up as I post them. 🙂 There were plenty of little chipmunks around the town of Breckenridge, most of these images were taken by the river that runs through the center of town:

It was really fun for me to discover some species I’d never seen (or even heard of) while I was traveling!  Both of these were from my visit to Rocky Mountain National Park:

"Pika" (perched on the rock, lower/left side of photo, he's TINY!) (c) 2010, Lynne Medsker

I also saw several hawks while I was driving around the countryside! Although I was never near enough to get a close up shot but these were fun to take, nonetheless.

Of course what trip west would be complete without seeing prairie dogs! These guys were all photographed in the Badlands of South Dakota.

I’ve still got photos of moose, elk, buffalo, deer, goat, antelope, cows, horses, sheep and mules to share in future posts!

Stay tuned,

    1. They are even cuter when they are somewhere other than my own yard! We have too many of them and they have chewed through wires on our vehicles on more than one occasion. Still cute to look at but not as much fun to live with!
