This past Sunday, I spent the better of the day with visiting family. We were at my second favorite spot in central Oregon...Newberry National Volcanic Monument. It wasn't always called that, and to me, it is still Newberry Crater.
So, once we got to the almost 8,000 foot peak, we enjoyed the views of the surrounding area and as we began to head back to the car, I caught sight of a chipmunk. I'm not sure, but I think it is a Least Chipmunk. It's really interesting to see them at that altitude.
Later, when we decided to stop by the Big Obsidian Flow, I was wandering around and found a couple of Mountain Chickadees working over a fir tree. I snapped several images of them and came out with one I really like.
I came across a number of other critters on that trip, including four new odonata...two of which I am having difficulty identifying. And then there were the critters I saw and couldn't image....but that's another story.
