Wildlife: Feuding Marmots
FEUDING MARMOTS, JASPER NATIONAL PARK, ALBERTA
One of the best attractions in this wonderful Rocky Mountain park is the Jasper Tram, which transports customers above the treeline to the top of Whistlers Mountain. During a visit there in 2009, this pair of marmots – probably mother & baby – were beautifully posed on some boulders just a few minutes’ walk from the top of the tram. Scrambling, I quickly slapped on a 35-70 mm. zoom lens and skipped the tripod, because I never knew how long I had before the marmots disappeared.

Great photo: the dof, the crispness of the animals, the composition!
Thanks for the kind words. I’ve been to this spot twice since then and never saw a single marmot.
