Did you know these were marmots before you went on vacation? I wouldn't have recognized them and would have been asking someone. It's been fun seeing an unfamiliar locale and new critters through your eyes, er, lens. She looks a little like the groundhog who's been chowing down on my coneflowers.
Lorri, there are lots of marmots in the high country. I learned of them years ago...at first, I thought they were beavers! :-D
What a sweet pose! Lovely! Glad you were able to capture it.Did you hear them whistle? Aren't there Whistling Marmots?
Girls always show off for the camera, we males are shy and retiring, like me!
The girl must be some famous marmot model - look how she strikes a pose! :) Too cute!
You can sure tell that she is a girly girl. Great capture.
Awesome shot. I love it when subjects cooperate :)
I'm ready for my close-up.....what a cute shot!
I got some great marmots in Colorado a couple of years ago. They do whistle. Interesting critters.
Wonderful shot, she does look to be looking for Mr. De Mille. Like any rodent it seems to matter where they want to move into...
What do you think?
