Prairie Dogs Of Southwick

Quickly the prairie dogs are becoming some of my favorite subjects at the Southwick Zoo. Their outside exhibit is easily accessible with a chest high fence making photography a snap. You can steady your camera for an unobstructed view. The animals are so used to the humans they’re not shy in the least. So, it’s a matter of picking the right pose and opportunity to get a good shot. The additional incentive comes from the sheer volume of critters available. They come in all ages and sizes.

  1. Wonderful, super. I love those guys a lot also, but never get a good chance to see them close like that. Thanks for the pictures.
