Curious White-Tailed Deer Fawn

This White-Tailed Deer fawn kept looking up to see what I was doing as I approached.  I never got close enough for it to move away but it kept pretty close tabs on what I was up to.  Luckily the lighting worked in my favor and I was able to capture this image with a catch light in the deer’s eye.

Beach Bum

What can I say about this photograph?  When I saw this dog playing on the beach I knew I had to get its picture.


Chipmunk On Rock

This chipmunk was scurrying among the rocks of the Firehole River in Yellowstone National Park.  It stopped on a nice sunny rock long enough for me to take this photo.


Angry Ground Squirrel

Late one evening I discovered a large colony of ground squirrels living around a tree.  I woke up early the next morning and quietly walked through their territory.  Doing so I began to realize the core group remained together near a tree but several individuals acted as perimeter security.  This one seemed to be warning the others of my presence.

Meerkat 1

This meerkat and its friends were digging in their sandy enclosure at the Metro Richmond Zoo when we visited in early April.


River Otter

I was hiking near the James River when I heard a small grunting sound.  The trail I was on crossed over a stream and when I looked to my left a group of 4 or 5 river otters were watching me.  They clearly wanted to cross the trail I was on and seemed annoyed I was in their way.  They stuck around long enough for me to take this photo before swimming back the way they came.
