Most of the images presented here feature critters encountered in either Searles Valley or Panamint Valley. However, some of the specimens shown here were photographed Death Valley, the Sierra Nevadas, or Nevada. It's always fun to see most any kind of critter. Whether in the desert or in the mountains, spotting one of these little varmits is kind of neat. Usually they run off before I can get my camera ready to take their picture, but sometimes I get lucky and snap a shot before they get away! Other times I'm real lucky and get some video.
