Description

I was intenly focused on a black-tailed prairie dog town whose inhabitants (Cynomys ludovicianus) are notoriously skittish. Because there was a lull in the activity I chose to survey the landscape around me. When I saw this scene developing I needed to change my lens, react quickly to the rapidly moving clouds, and the crepuscular rays penetrating the storm clouds while illuminating some areas on the valley floor near El Dorado Springs.
