A Richardson’s ground squirrel (Spermophilus richardsonii) watches alertly from the entrance to it’s burrow.

Captured in St. Mary’s Reservoir Provincial Recreation Area, near Magrath, Alberta, Canada.

Taken with a Canon Rebel XSi using a 75-300mm @ 300mm, f/5.6, 1/320 sec., ISO 100.

I am an amateur photographer living in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada.

I enjoy photographing the wonders of the world around me; whether that means capturing images of animals and wildlife, scenic natural landscapes, or man-made wonders.

I travel all over Canada in pursuit of this passion and my dream is to one day be able to do this full-time.

Thank you for your interest in my work,

    Wonderful shot Alyce. We have them here in Manitoba too. They are so much fun to watch.

    I didn’t realize there were different kinds of ground squirrels. THis one looks much like our Prairie Dogs. Barb

  • Hi Barbara…they are so similar that they are often mistaken for each other…apparently the only difference is the length of the tail and their hibernation length.
