I've been wanting to get some good shots of prairie dogs.  They are all over the place around here.  They walk on the sidewalks near their fields.  I thought it would be simple enough to snap a few, but apparently they do not like cameras.  They all ran as soon as I took mine out.  I got this little fellow from the car.  He blinked, which makes him look like he's hiding, doesn't it?

The other difficulty I discovered is that the camera has trouble focusing on such a small creature that blends in so well with its surroundings.  It did better than my manual attempts, but any tips on focusing on far away small things will be appreciated.

Great capture! He looks like he's taking a nap.

he looks as if he's sun bathing too.
