My name is Heather and I live in the Denver area.
My 2011 resolution was to photograph prairie dogs once a week. By the end of February I was so enamored of one particular family that I made it my goal to go to photograph them every day. I completed that goal in February and continue to follow them.
I know prairie dogs have had a rocky history with mankind- officially considered a terrible environmental pest until relatively recently- so I hope that my photographs might show them as they are: cute, tragic, pugnacious, silly, cliquish, tenacious, loving; prairie dogs are complex creatures striving every day to keep on surviving.
I also have prairie dog and associated wildlife videos up on youtube.
