On the Lookout

101 0


This Yellow Bellied Marmot (marmota flaviventris) was on lookout duty for her colony. Once a threat was identified (like a giant human carrying a 600mm lens) she would call out in a very loud, shrill chirp to let the others know it was time to run to the safety of their burrow.
