My Favorite Images / “A Mouth Full” Marmot

 

I photographed this Marmot in the high alpine rocky areas of the Absaroka Range Wyoming, off the Beartooth Scenic Highway. He was carefully venturing out of his den to the open grassy areas,  collecting as much grass as he could stuff in his mouth and quickly running back to the den. I slowly positioned myself close to his traveling path and after he noticed me he would always stop and make sure I was not too close and that it was safe to continue his grass collecting chores.
