Nice images of an animal that I have never seen live, thanks for posting them.

Nice work. The last shot, especially, looks great on your Flickr.

Great image quality for ISO 3200. Are those out-of-camera jpegs or processed RAW files?

You probably had to hike a great deal to find these. Very nice shots.

Thanks, was taken in the Parc des Ecrins french national park where I saw them first in June. You need to walk 1h30 (~550m D+) to go there and if you do this early in the morning you have some time alone with the marmots and they're not really shy while you're calm.
I'll probably try to go there in July to see the young marmot when they're still small, they were not out yet in June and they grow up very fast. Don't know if i'll be brave enough to go there with my DA560 that should arrive soon !

Woah!! Génial! A DA560? And s'il vous plait, you can even just post on this forum a photo of your DA560 when it arrives. That would be so cool.

Fine shots, great detail of an animal in its own natural habitat.

We spent three weeks in the Alps this summer and didn't see a single marmot. You lucky bugger!

Nice shots, and I'm impressed with the quality from ISO3200!
