    Default Pika/Weasel

    I shot this picture while sitting in a boulder field at Hatcher Pass last weekend. It took about ten minutes before this Pika had to investigate. Several came within five feet to feed on grasses and tundra around me.

    I also witnessed a weasel hunting pika. I was able to call it in with some squeaking sounds and captured this image.

    Thanks for the nice comments. I use a canon digital SLR with a 100-400mm lens. A shorter focal length would have worked just fine since the little critters were at times within five feet of me. Lots of fun photographing them. Something I have wanted to do since I was a kid.

    EricL, I will PM you the location.
