Arctic Ground Squirrel
Arctic Ground Squirrel
While shooting the tundra, someone noticed an arctic ground squirrel off to the side. So there were ten of us intrepid photograpers, long glass mounted on tripods, surrounding this tiny creature. The squirrel maintained its composure throughout, posing for the better part of an hour. Don't ask me what we found to shoot for an hour, but shoot we did. From that moment on, ground squirrels were the stars of our trip.
