Thank you Chief!

Thank you Neil and Daniele for the compliments. I shot it with 55mm. lens, you could imagine how close I was almost touched it, but I did not want to distract it from eating. It was eating or licking something on a rock and did no bother my staring at it. In two other encounters those Pika ran away as soon as it saw me. Thank you.

Great find Chief! Any description or notes you can add? How did you come across it? It'll make your spotting all more worthwhile :-)
