Himalayas Wildlife: Marmot below SirSir La pass, Ladakh

The SirSir La is one of the seven passes to cross on the trail from Phanjila to Padum. I was descended from the pass on a September evening in 2009  heading for the village of Photoksur when I spotted this marmot peering out it's burrow. It vanished inside again, only to resurface after a few minutes and gave me a chance to take a few photographs.
