This photo was taken in June, during our trek through Tatras mountain. It was taken under Koscielec (2155m). Beautiful and majestic hill.
The marmot is a very rare animal in my country.
Thanks for visiting.

Hi Maciej

Good sighting as these mountain squirrels are generally rare everywhere. Good pose of this one in its typical rocky outcrop surroundings. Difficult exposure in not so good light, a little on the darker side perhaps. Still a good catch.

beautiful wild life image. good angle and framing. unique species. good work. tfs.

Hi Maciej
One of my first photos was of a marmot in Jasper. It was summer at a Ski resort called Marmot Basin. He was high up like this one, and looking as content as yours. Very nice scene, well composed with good colour and clarity.
Thanks for sharing
Best regards

Hi Maciej,

You're capturing well this scenery by a good focus and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the animal inhabiting high ground. It looks like very cute. And, it's effective and good for the contrast between this side with greenery/clearness and the cliff in back with blurred image.

Kind regards,
