Zoltán Gergely Nagy - Time for hay
European ground squirrel (or European souslik) collecting hay for its den on the arid grasslands and steppe plains of Dobrudja, as the seasons change. Although they don’t spend as much time hibernating as their larger relatives, the alpine marmots, ground squirrels also retreat to their dens for the winter, escaping the freezing cold winds of the plains.
