"Whoa! Where did you come from?"

A little American Pika seems a bit surprised to find a photographer in its area. 😉

From last weekend. My wife and I were hanging out on a talus field watching a few of these guys go about gathering food and nesting material for the winter. They largely ignored us and this particular one, didn’t seem to notice us despite being just five feet away. It was looking the other way as I started taking pictures but then turned quickly when it heard my camera. It definitely didn’t seem to be expecting us.

It is said this species of pika may become a victim of a warming climate. Studies suggest the American Pika is being driven to higher elevations in search of cooler temperatures. As it moves higher however, it could eventually run out of places to go.

Taken in Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado.
