A little wanting food

Yesterday I explained why I do not crop my images, over the last few years I have also only use the landscape format and have discarded portrait format, but in 2006, when these shots were taken, I used both formats, so I have had to crop these images before uploading.................... OK I'm a bit of a pain in the you know what, sorry about that.

Yesterday Sigi did not think that the porcupine looked very happy and I have to agree with her, so these little chaps are for her, they are the Golden Mantled Ground Squirrel, we found them at various locations around Banff, these shots were taken at the top of Sulphur Mountain. This little guy was all over Katie, not in the least afraid, when I looked round when taking the shots, there were a crowd of people watching.

There were some Least Chipmunk about, you could feed them, but at a distance and once their pouches were full they disappeared very quickly, Katie managed to get some shots of them.

No decent photographs of the mountains, as we had lots of smoke from forest fires further south across the border, I was most disappointed as this was a once in a lifetime visit.
