What's Up Doc?

There seems to be thousands of these critters living in the grasslands in large colonies. They appear to be playful and curious but still retain a degree of nervousness. They are of genus Cynomys, and commonly called Prairie Dogs. A long lens would allow you to pick up some of their intimate interactions without spooking them.
