Hello
A curious Golden-mantled Ground Squirrel (Spermophilus lateralis)
encountered enroute to South Sister.
Spring Mountains, Nevada. August 2008.

These guys are often mistaken for chipmunks due to their small size.

How close were you to this little guy?
Did you use a long lense, or were you able to get close without scaring him?

I was fairly close just w few feet away, but still had to use the long lens to get this photo.
His home was right behind him so he was ready to run inside anytime but too curious to do so right away.
