moocher marmot
a pair of marmots insisted on a snack, almost climbing into my lap while sitting in tall grass during a descent of Wheeler Peak, NM. I sacrificed my last granola bar , but got some extreme close-ups. 7-30-08

Marmots on frequently climb mountains are so used to snack handouts, they respond to the sound of crackling wrappers as you take a food break. I have photographed them in the Wind River Range in Wyoming, covered with pesky mosquitos. This one on Wheeler Peak wasn't being bothered by the bugs. Thanks again. slowbutsteady

Such a fluffy cuddly teddy-bear of a marmot ;-) and he looks as if he posed specially for your photo! ;-))

Thank you, Eric, for your vote and comments. I loved listening to your Scriabin and Chopin, combined with the video. What camera are you using for your video? You seem to have a good control and steadiness. Wonderful, that image stabilization! I hope you are able to take care of your hands when hiking. It seems gripping tightly to trekking poles aggravates arthritis, but of course I am not playing professionally anymore. What a joy to experience music and photography together the way you have presented it here in these videos. Best regards
