Species: O. himalayana
This small animal was coming out and going inside its burrow. After waiting for a long time in the freezing cold whether at 14,000ft altitude, it gradually got used to me and allowed me to sit as close as 5ft. i used flash -built in - to get the catch light in the eye.

cute little thing, TFS Ori
This is a lovely animal! What a beautiful capture and composition. Flash is not really recommended with some animals like squirrels, deer, rabbit, etc because it makes the eye looking strange like in this picture. Even though, I like this capture very much! Thanks,
Preciosa composición con bellos y naturales colores. Veo que a ellos también les salen los ojos rojos jajaja.

Hi Satish ,
I like this cute little pika and we have Pikas here in the mountains where I live as well.Claudine is right about the use of flash as the eye doesn't look very natural but apart from that,this is a good capture of this small creature.I have done a workshop to tame the eye somewhat and I hope you like what I have done for your little critter.
