These three baby marmots are surveying their domain. I had been watching and photographing the marmots for about an hour and they seemed quite comfortable and able to ignore me completely. When I first arrived, an adult marmot issued a warning alert for quite a bit. The warning is a very high pitched and penetrating squeaking sound. The main marmot colony is located in a lot of large boulders that were dumped near the bridge to support the soil along the roadbed. But, they have expanded beyond that into the meadow below, where there are marmot tunnels every few feet. The colony is quite close to the Arapaho Bay campground where we were camped. This is near Granby Lake in Colorado. I had never seen a marmot in real life before and I found them quite interesting. View the detail on the three baby marmots in the largest sizes. Golly, I'm amazed by the response to my daily yesterday of the sun shining through holes in the clouds. A number of you indicated that you, too, are constantly jumping out of your cars to take photos. I was just really lucky to be out and about so that I saw those rays as they came through the clouds. Thanks, folks, for taking the time to comment on the shot.
