Almost forgot about these guys, can't ever tell the difference between these and Prairie dogs, maybe they're one in the same. Cool shot, thanks for jolting my memory:)

Thanks ML... yes they are also prairie dogs and known too as Richardsons Ground squirrels. There's enough of them around here...that's for sure!
I always think of Caddyshack and Bill Murray when I see them..."Au revoir Go-fer!" :)

JJ...lol...do you mean "shoot them" as in blow them away or shoot them with a camera?
Alot of people here like to go out and shoot them in the "blowing them away" meaning and not with a camera. Seems to be a weekend past time for many out here.... ;)

The pun WAS intended. I would be out there to do both of them. I find that shooting firearms and cameras have a lot of similarities. Getting good at one will help the other.

You know spring has arrived when you spot your first flattened gopher on the road.
