Emerging from its hole

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Wednesday Challenge: Hole.

This is a Richardson’s Ground Squirrel emerging from a burrow (or hole). Photographed near Punnichy, Saskatchewan, Canada in early spring.

Thanks Sue. I’m guessing that they could climb a tree to escape a coyote or fox but a lot of the ground squirrel and gopher species are found on the prairies so many will never have been close to a tree.

I used to try to keep my files updated whenever I upgraded or changed equipment that meant an increase in image quality. I don’t worry about it these days. There’s little point spending silly money on exotic lenses when editors and publishers expect to get images for free.
