On our Yellowstone trip this spring, as much as all the large animals were the focus of our efforts, I really liked the smaller ones too. There were ground squirrels everywhere - though no one really seemed to notice them most of the time. I liked watching them give alarm calls, dart around, and keep lookout. Sometimes I would see them in the sagebrush, climbed up high enough to see out, hard to see for predators. I never got a good photo of one in sagebrush, but I did get some good ones of them on the ground.
