Prairie Dog, Billings, Montana. by 

My first experience of wild Prairie Dogs. I discovered this colony at Billings, Montana, right near our motel, during our U.S. roadtrip in 2008. Had a wonderful couple of hours watching them.

Canon EOS 40D. Canon EF 70-300mmIS lens.

I am an avid photographer of 60+ and will shoot just about anything, although I’m not so good at moving objects. Anything faster than a snail leaves me for dead. (haha) I do prefer natural landscapes over urban ones but, really, nothing is safe from my lens. I also enjoy turning my failed images, and there are lots, into digital art.

In 2014 I started dabbling in Fractal Art using Apophysis 7x to satisfy my creative urges on the days when I can’t take photos.

  • Thank you Barb. I loved watching these little critters running around. They are so cute and funny. My only regret with going back to the states at the end of this year is that I will miss them as they will have gone underground for the winter.:)
