Lunch on the Precipice
|[ Sizes: Orig | Large | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
A golden-mantled ground squirrel (Spermophilus lateralis) lunches on the edge of the precipice at Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, CO. It may not be obvious, but that drop to the Gunnison River in the distance approaches 2,000 feet! Imaged in August 2006.
