“The Marmot and the Sheep”

_DSC1780

Here are two unlikely friends.  When the marmot approached the Big Horn Sheep, I was not sure what the encounter would look like in terms of acceptance and sharing territory.  To my surprise and appreciation, they acted like they were old friends.  It was a beautiful lesson of diversity, acceptance and tolerance for me.  As usual, nature is always my teacher…

“Animal Fun”

 

Patience with photography can often provide some humorous benefits.  I hope these make you smile.  I love the concentric circles with the ducks.  Also, I have never seen marmots playing together.  Before this tender pose, they were running and chasing each other and doing summersaults in the tundra.  Then, suddenly, they stopped and appreciated each other and the moment.
