Golden mantled ground squirrel
Photographer: Andrew Skinner
Location: Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada
Story: 
I encountered these two golden mantled ground squirrels who had been scampering around the rocks for some time feeding. One of them was feeding on a dandelion when the other jumped up onto the rock. I was able to capture a moment of aggression as they started squabbling over the dandelion feast.
