I took these pictures near Lake Louise and Bow Lake on the weekend.

Some good ones Jim! That Black Bear looks fat enough to be ready for winter.

Jim I'll say thanks for posting something different. These are really good, all of them. I have no idea what the last two are but my favorite of all of them is #4. Very pretty little guy.

Regards, Houston

Great shots, Jim!! I agree with Houston...thanks for a change of pace! It do look like Blacky will be getting ready to hold up for a couple of months or so. Is that a chinchilla?? Looks like the fur would be soft enough to be one. Not sure about the last character ... is it a weasel?? looks like he made for quite a model!!:GJust curious, how far away for these shots & where???

Thanks everyone for looking and all the compliments.

Wadue - the cute little critter is called a Pika. They live on the rock slides in the mountains at fairly high elevations. I was using my 300 F4 with a 1.4 extender to get these shots. Sometimes I was too close! They were anywhere from two to ten metres away. I'm still trying to find a positive ID on the weasel. It was hunting the Pikas while I was trying to photograph them!

A great place to find Pikas is at Bow Lake - just north of Lake Louise in Alberta. There is a trail that parallels the lake on the way to Bow Glacier. At the top of the lake are a series of rock slides. You have to listen for their call and then watch carefully and you will see them running across the rocks.
