We found this little guy on Christmas Eve, west of Choteau, Montana. A ground blizzard was on, and he was facing into the wind, to keep the snow from packing tight to his quills, when we came along. Of course I had to attempt to get a photo of him, so he turned his side to the wind trying to escape my camera. I took a few photos of him, then we moved on.
It was 40 below zero wind chill, my fingers were frozen to the camera in a short time. But the picture was worth it.
