[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another shot of the hoary marmot (whistling marmot or "whistler") now seen here digging its burrow on the top of Little Whistler Peak above the town of Whistler in BC, Canada. For more details about this giant high altitude squirrel, see my previous submission.
Taken with some telephoto and same post-processing as the previous image.

Nice composition John.. I wonder how you managed to get so close to the whistler. Nice pose of the subject.. and lovely mountains in the background. Bravo!

Ah the Marmot again. Good capture John, very interesting seeing him dig his burrow. He has beautiful fur too, well prepared for the winter just past. I am surprised at his size. Well shown, thank you.

I like the subject matter/Marmot. The sky -mtns, looks almost unreal...great shot

This is a very nice composition and you managed the exposure between the darken FG and lighter BG well. Like this.

The composition you have choosen is rather unusual for me (I would take away the mountains in the background). But in your picture they are adding somthing extra. TFS, Willem

I love this photograph. The background, the composition, everything! Nice catch!
