Wildlife: waiting for winter
GOLDEN-MANTLED GROUND SQUIRREL, JASPER NATIONAL PARK, ALBERTA, CANADA
My wife and I were hiking up the steep slopes to the top of Whistlers mountain when we spotted this guy. He (she?) stayed quite still while I slipped the 70-300 mm. telephoto lens onto the Nikon D7100 and started making pictures. This is one of the best. I went for the shallowest depth of field possible to make sure the background was far out of focus.
