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.

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.

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.

This gray squirrel came by to get in on the action as birds were dropping seeds from my backyard feeder.

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

This alpaca was standing with the sun on its back when I approached. In order to properly expose its face I had to massively over expose the background. In this case that was probably for the best. There was nothing particularly scenic behind the alpaca and the white background really focuses attention on the animal.
