Good shot of this marmot. I saw Hoarys in Alaska, but never got at all close. The Yellow-bellied are the kind I've seen in Colorado and No California. Fun to see the differences.
Cute Little Guy...
cute lil feller/great capture
Nice shot! We came within 25 feet of two Hoary Marmots at the base of Mt. Rainier (2012). They were feeding before going into hibernation. It's the largest ground squirrel in North America!
so very cute
Great capture with the marmot and the wild flowers!
