|This mouse hare is called The Royle's Pika (Ochotona roylei) and is a species of mammal in the Ochotonidae family. It is found in China, India, Nepal, and Pakistan. I clicked this rare beauty which is difficult to capture as it moves very fast, on my trek to Surajtaal from Chandertaal in the Spiti valley. |

Hello Ankit !
I think it is the first time I see this animal, it must be rare or very difficult to see. You managed to get a good shot of this unusual animal - maybe it is a bit soft but I understand that it was the best you could do, given that this animal was runing so fast. I also like that we can see the Pika's natural environment, around him. Very well done !
a very rare animal captured,it must have beena difficult shot,well done.
