Marmotmania

Today, I’m featuring a few more images of an adult Hoary Marmot that I found around the Lunch Creek (Glacier NP, Montana) parking area. These furry mammals are fun to watch! Here are a few of my favorite images of this single adult marmot: And if you missed last Friday’s “Fun Friday” post of this […]

Once I exited the car and headed to the waterfall, I noticed this mature Hoary […]

Fun Friday: Enjoying Life & Playing Hard!

Today’s Fun Friday post comes from my visit to Mount Evans, Colorado, where I ran into a large family of Yellow-bellied Marmots (Marmota flaviventris). One attending adult and six babies were all in a small rocky area, just off the Mount Evans Highway. I’ll share some “family portraits” in a future post, but today’s post […]

Fun Friday: Talk About a Burrow!

While photographing Mountain Goats in the rocky landscape of Glacier NP, an amusing Hoary Marmot (Marmota caligata) ran about the snow slope and ended up at his “burrow”, which was actually a hole he had dug into the deep snow, just to get to his burrow! Glacier NP received a heavy snowstorm in late June, […]

Watch Them Teeth, Please!

While traveling the Mount Evans Highway, I stopped to photograph some young Yellow-bellied Marmots (Marmota flaviventris) that were running around, playing next to the narrow road to the summit. As I began photographing the young marmots, one took note and decided to “people watch”: After a few quick images, this little guy ran behind a […]

Here are some images I made of the little guy, next to his burrow:   […]

“Fun Friday: Say Cheese!”

Today’s “Fun Friday” post comes from the roadside, on the way to the top of Mount Evans. As we neared the top, we ran across some Bighorn Sheep grazing on the side of the road. Pulling over, I photographed the sheep for a few minutes and then noticed an adult and 2 juvenile Yellow-bellied Marmots […]

Fun Friday: “Howdee, Partner!”

… this juvenile Yellow-bellied Marmot (Marmota flaviventris) seems to be gesturing to me! Actually, he is stretching as he warms on a large rock in the Maroon Bells area of Colorado:     The Yellow-bellied Marmot was a “life” mammal for me on this trip to Colorado. Fortunately, I was able to get many images […]
