Default Marmot

Hi to all,

I am just back from a two week hiking tour in the Austrian alps.

For the tours I used my FZ40/45 and here are the first pictures of a Marmot (Marmota monax) on approx. 2300 m altitude.

I hope you will enjoy the pix.

Cheers,

Stefan

Nice shot. We call those "groundhog" or "woodchuck" here. Marmot is the "proper" name, though.
