[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Himalayan marmot is one of the highest living mammals in the world. Himalayan marmots are found from 4000 m to the upper edge of the vegetated zone (5500 m) in the mountains. A subspecies of the Himalayan marmot, M. himalyana robusta, is one of the largest marmots and may weigh over 6 kg.
Here one can see two pups looking at us anxiously. Locals call them "Fya".

This is too distant a view of the marmots to give a clear impression of them, Subhash.
Get closer.

hello Subhash

there is marmots in North America, there is in Europe in the Alpians
and it is the first time (or i forgot) that i see that there is also marmots
in the Himalayan Mountains, and why not if there is in the Alpian mountains,
here in North America is everywhere even in the citys,

a beautiful photography of these marmots with fine POV, DOF,
i love that they are from far and we see them in their habitat, TFS


Dear friend, Dr. Subhash Ranjan,
Very interesting, indeed!!! Had no idea these existed anymore. They look a lot like miniture BEARS.
Excellent image.
HIGHLY EDUCATIVE, at least to me!!!
Mario your friend ..... ALWAYS.
P.S. Forgot to mention: The distribution of the HUGE BOULDERS shows clearly how the glaciers have moved them .... took millions of years .... HOW POWERFUL NATURE IS!!!
