My Small Mammal Photography Experience

It would be easy to ignore these little guys, but as a committed wildlife photographer, I try to give as many species as I can a chance to be on my website. They may be little but getting photos of small mammals like Marmots, Pika and Prairie Dogs takes a large amount of effort and a big lens. After the big mammals had headed back into the woods in the morning, I would take the time to go back to some locations I had filed away where I saw the little guys. I would have to say the Pika are the most fun, darting in and out of the rocks.

Facts About Small Mammals

The prairie dog (genus Cynomys) is any of five species of burrowing, colony-forming squirrels that inhabit plains, high plateaus, and valleys in North America. Prairie dogs weigh up to 3.7 pounds with a body 11–13 inches long. The marmot (genus Marmota) is any of 14 species of giant ground squirrels found primarily in North America and Eurasia. Marmots weigh 6.6 to 15.4 pounds (depending upon the species) and the length of the body is 11.8 to 23.6 inches long.

The Fascinating Behavior of Small Mammals

Capturing photos of Marmots, Pika, and Prairie Dogs seems a little odd at first. The truth is even the small critters are engaging in interesting behavior if you take the time to watch and study them. Just like larger mammals, there is a clear interaction between the mothers and their offspring.

The Marmots appear to have a family unit. The Pika dart in and out from between the rocks. The Prairie Dogs are always on the alert and make quite a racket when they stand up to sound the alarm. A lot is going on to photograph with them. It just takes a little patience to see it.
