Pika with its mouth full by Fi Rust

Pro photographer Fi Rust spends a lot of time with pikas in Rocky Mountain National Park every summer. "Pikas usually take the same route back and forth to their stash areas as they gather food for the winter, but seldom stop when they have their mouth full," the Colorado resident writes. "So I was very happy to get this picture." Rust used a Canon EOS 30D and a 100-400mm lens.
