Title:
Collared pika Hatcher Pass 2016 2

Description:
As a wildlife photographer living in Colorado, I often get to the high country to photograph the small mammals that like the cold as much as I do. But in 2016 I spent the summer in Alaska where the wildlife of the high country, which is about 8,000 feet lower but a few thousand miles further north, is very similar. This collared pika was one of my favorite subjects. She stopped to munch on some alpine flowers before scurrying back to her task of building her hay piles for the coming winter. Photographed near Hatcher Pass, Alaska.
