Photo-Finish Friday -- Pika Boo

PikaDay 025
This happy little lagomorph is a pika. 
We found it and another on Rock Glacier, Kananaskis, Ab. on our day trip last Sunday.
Pikas are very hard to see against the rocks as they blend right in.

Hard to see, indeed. Even after you picked him out for me, it took a second for him to come in focus.

They hide in plain sight better than anything.

Thanks, Messymimi.

Could he possibly be any cuter?

So, a lagomorph.. is it related to rabbits?

Great post title, by the way.

Hilary, they are adorable.
Yep, same family. In fact, there's an info sign on the glacier calling them rock rabbits.
Thanks re:post title.
