An alpine marmot (Marmota Marmota) coming out from his burrow.
The marmot is actually the same, shot in various positions with still camera.
I then chose the best shots and composed them together.
I was excited as a child while shooting, because I had never seen marmots before, and I didn't think one could get so close to them and their burrows!
The Parco Nazionale del Gran Paradiso is the first natural reserve ever founded in Italy (1856). It's a wonderful place at just two hours from Torino.
The first "Marmotta Day" was organized by a group of italian photo amateurs (well, mostly Nikon-addicted...) and the majority of them was surprised by the number of marmots all around, and how they could get close to them, absolutely without attracting them with food or anything.
Here (courtesy Nital forum) some shot of that unforgettable day: http://www.nital.it/forum/index.php?showtopic=68712
