2016—Prairie Dog Pups

The cutest babies in Custer State Park were the prairie dog pups.  We watched a couple of Prairie Dog burrows for about an hour and a half one morning, paying the most attention to a large mound with an unusually large number of pups.  We counted 8 pups but I managed to photograph only six at a time because they would dart in and out of the hole too quickly for me to react, even with my 12 FPS Nikon D5.  This is one of my favorite shots featuring only half the brood.

    Adorable shot!!! And as usual I’m loving the way your lens blurs the background.
