In the spirit of Silly Tuesday...
Now you see him, now you don't!
A pika is small and blends in with the rocks, and runs in and out of holes. By the time you spot him in your viewfinder, off he goes.
Pikas prefer rocky slopes and graze on a range of plants, mostly grasses, flowers and young stems. In the autumn, they pull hay, soft twigs and other stores of food into their burrows to eat during the long cold winter. The pika is also known as the "whistling hare" for its high-pitched alarm call when diving into its burrow.
I didn't have much luck getting a good shot of this hyper little critter with a mouthful of plants, and didn't have time to keep trying. This is zoomed and cropped, but it was the best I could do.
