Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado
I photographed this female Yellow-bellied Marmot with one of her young last week. I found the family a couple of weeks ago living under a giant boulder with a downed tree nearby. Occasionally, one of the babies would sit with its arms around the end of the tree which was really cute but I was hoping for some interaction. On my third visit, I was rewarded with this great photo opportunity which only last for a couple of seconds but fortunately I was ready.
