Description
I was seeking out screes in search of photographing pikas when I honed in on one emitting a loud pitched "meep" sound. Once I located it I started to move in. I'm sure it though I was not able to see it considering it was very well camouflaged with its surroundings. I was able to get close enough and as I was photographing it it released a yawn as large as a lion stretching out its little appendages as shown in the image. It was one of those rare moments of being in the right place at the right time.
