What can I say about this photograph? When I saw this dog playing on the beach I knew I had to get its picture.
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.
This meerkat and its friends were digging in their sandy enclosure at the Metro Richmond Zoo when we visited in early April.
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.
