One of the things that always strikes me as amusing about these high-altitude residents are those whiskers. They seem to me to be ridiculously long, something highlighted in this image thanks to the lighting. Oh, and check out those cute little feet! 😉
Last weekend I photographed a number of these cool little dudes although most of the pics were lacking action like this one, just a pika posing. With the first snows of the season reported at Colorado’s highest altitudes this past week, these guys will be furiously working to prepare their dens for the coming winter.
