Richardson's Grond Squirrel by 

Found throughout the prairies and into the grasslands of Southern Yukon. The fundamental social bond in Richardson’s ground squirrels is between mother and offspring, particularly female offspring. ons generally disperse as juveniles, whereas daughters settle near their natal site, forming fundamental social units based on lifetime kinship associations between mother-daughter and littermate sisters. Richardson’s ground squirrels do not defend a communal territory; instead each individual independently exhibits dominance over intruding non-kin.

Because of their tendency to attempt to cross the roads faster than the approaching cars, they are known locally as suicide squirrels

Played with photography since early High School. Since moving to the Yukon in 1997 I have become much more involved and am now comfortable in Photoshop although there is always more to learn. The Yukon is a great canvas and would recommend it for most everyone’s Bucket List
