Spring Has Sprung

Hey, what you want?

OK, back to business.

As opposed to my last post on the subject, it looks like spring might actually have sprung here in Calgary.  How do I know it?  Well, the locals seem to be into the swing of things for spring.  We found this little dude (or dudette?) while walking down the pathway to the park by our house.  He’s still looking pretty winter-white, but he had a brown stripe right down his back.

We had the camera with us, so I started stalking.  He was really interested in digging the hole he was in, so I managed to get within 10 feet or so equipped with a 100mm f/2.8 lens.
