A beautiful day here in Kansas and then downhill from here into the heat again.  This was taken on our trip to South Dakota.  When we were in the Badlands we were able to see a variety of wildlife like the Bighorn Sheep I already shared.  These guys are on a different scale and there were several colonies we saw of them throughout the park.  These are Prairie Dogs and were just so much fun to watch giving their warning barks and popping up out of their tunnels or playing together like these 3.  They get a bad rep by ranchers but studies have shown they actually benefit the land they are colonized in by keeping it aerated and so the soil stays more fertile and the grass grows better.  Plus they are so cute, how can you resist those faces.  :-)
