[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Marmots are generally large ground squirrels. Those most often referred to as marmots tend to live in mountainous areas such as the Alps, northern Apennines, Eurasian steppes, Carpathians, Tatras, and Pyrenees in Europe and northwestern Asia; the Rocky Mountains, Black Hills, Cascades, and Sierra Nevada in North America; and the Deosai Plateau in Pakistan and Ladakh in India.Marmots typically live in burrows, and hibernate there through the winter. Most marmots are highly social, and use loud whistles to communicate with one another, especially when alarmed.

Hi Jacek,
What a cool shot. Nicely focused through the trees, moss and grass, you actually framed its face. It's really kind of cute actually. Nice catch light in it's eye. We don't see many of these here. I like it.

Excellent point of view, good lighting and details. Perfectly captures the animal in its environment. regards yiannis
