    I saw the real deal in the wild out west and seeing them pop up and down from their holes is so funny and looks almost mechanical. They’re adorable!

    Please know that I am joking. No prairie dogs were hurt in the production of this picture, right? Anyways, I really enjoy this photograph.

This summer on a Maine road trip we stopped in the family-friendly “York Zoo” near the New Hampshire border. The most fun photography for me was the kitschy prairie dog exhibit where the charismatic rodents prepared for battle in a giant sand fort labeled “Alamo” with cannon battlements.
