Yellow-bellied marmots (Marmota flaviventris) always seem to have a look of such great seriousness on their cute and furry faces.

During an unexpected chance to experience Africa, a seed was planted. Nurtured by subsequent forays into wild places, this photographer was born.

Jacques Cousteau said “People protect what they love.” And we’ve all heard that “A picture is worth a thousand words.” So, enough with this. My photography says the rest. Thanks for listening.

    WOW!!!! This is really a cutie ….very good capture!!!! :-)

  • Thanks Lorraine! This guy is actually one in a family of at least 8 marmots. And every single one of them was 200% adorable. I took so many pictures of them, it’s hard to sort out which images I like best. So, warning, this probably won’t be the last time you’ll see of this cutie! ;-)
