We’re going through a bit of a drought on big animals. We’ve been to the rim a number of times, leaving early in the morning to catch good action. But they must be hiding someplace else. I hear bugling in our own neighborhood… but no elk to be photographed.
With no elk in sight, it’s time to turn the camera down. When given chipmunks, shoot chipmunks. I’ve had bad luck shooting chipmunks in the past. The smaller the animal the more fearsome it is. Since it’s prey, it doesn’t hang around long. They are very skittish. But I was determined to get a shot, so I set up my camera and waited.
I got a couple bunnies that weren’t too concerned about me, happily munching away on the plentiful grass the rain has brought.
Finally I got a couple chipmunks together in a little love bite, at least that’s what I’ll call it.
