Yellow-bellied Marmot Closeup – This is a cropped close-up of the Yellow-bellied Marmot I photographed while in the Big Horn Mountains. We had been looking for Pica to photograph but were pleasantly surprised to see this young Marmot.
As we were getting ready to give it up and move on, John spotted this immature marmot who was just too cute to pass up. I was so close to it I had to back off on the telephoto some in order to get its entire body in the frame. This image is a crop highlighting the face and whiskers.
