This little guy's name is Larry, so named by the son of my good friend, Jay Riser, who also happens to be a photographer.
I began clicking off a series of images the moment he ran from crevice in the rocks where he was storing his winter larder of grasses and forbs. I continued to keep the shutter release depressed, while doing my best to keep him centered in the viewfinder as he ran about. The result was this image that caught him jumping onto the pyramid-shaped rock where he sat and rested for several minutes before continuing his antics.
This image is available as a signed, limited edition (500) photograph. Go to my website, Wildlife Photography by Weldon Lee, for details on pricing and presentation options.
Join me on my High Country Wildlife photo adventure in August, 2011, and I will teach you how to make images just like this one.
