black hills, south dakota: wildlife

All pictures taken July 12-14, 2007, Black Hills, South Dakota

Among all the rest of it, I was lucky to be able to get some great wildlife shots, too. Here’s a groundhog digging out a new tunnel (you’re just going to have to trust me that the little grey blur in the middle is a groundhog):

groundhog!

And this demonic little bugger hovered nearby, baring his fangs and obviously contemplating making off with one of the children:

devil bunny

During our drive up to Deadwood, as we crawled along 16A, we encountered this little herd:

buffalo 1

buffalo 2

buffalo 3

Sorry, I couldn’t help myself:

fukn up yer trafick...

And this surly bastard stared us down as we left the forest:

burro

Also on our way to Deadwood, we saw these guys clinging to a cliff:

mountain goat

I got this one to gimme the eye:

And, in case you missed it, we did run into one other little bit of wildlife.

    That bunny makes me think of Watership Down when Fiver is seeing all the blood.

    The buffalo were amazing, that’s something you don’t see in OB, huh?
