One of the things I love about wildlife photography is being able to capture intimacy with animals. I was watching this mother Black-tailed Prairie dog and its young playing around with one another. He was born only a few months ago but already he has grown so fast. I loved the interaction here and how he would hug her literally at times, it was absolutely adorable and then this happened. Sometimes you just have to wonder about animals and if they are a lot more human than what we give them credit for.

:bulletblue: Sharing is caring!--My rules for using my images I ask that you respect my artwork and my rules when sharing my images. You are more than welcomed to share my artwork anywhere you like, however I do ask that you do NOT remove my ©, alter my image in any way, shape or form and that you link back to where the image came from, in this case my site on DA (though my personal website would be ok as well) That is all I ask. Thank you!

Beautiful moment captured here John!

I have to agree, I have seen actions that would have you believe they do understand emotions and caring for each other. Momma Fox would always show each kit affection when she returned to the den.
