I'm heading away for a few days...first camping trip of the year!! Have a few deliveries to make and we should be able to find bears to photograph. Not sure about the bug situation but hoping we're over the worst of blackflies etc. The weather is going to be cool and we're getting some rain. Love camping in the rain not to mention the photography opportunities that provides. Hope everyone has a great weekend.

This poor Yellow-Bellied Marmot Mom was very busy. Her babies were just beginning to explore areas outside of the den and she wasn't happy about it! She'd go and roll one baby into a ball and carry it in her mouth back to the den. As soon as one baby was safe inside, she would go collect another by which time the first baby was already back outside the den running around. Not sure where the male or other female was during this time...they didn't make an appearance until later on in the day leaving this poor girl alone with at least 8 active little explorers.
