Still wet from a swim in the pond and on the very serious lookout for a meal of chipmunk or rabbit.

Cool! They're supposed to be re-establishing in Illinois, too. I have yet to see one but we usually have the dogs with us, which means I may never see one. Fishers are supposed to be on the rise again too.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks all for checking out the mink. Here's a shot of a fisher from a few days earlier. As in focus as the mink, is as out of focus the fisher. It was getting dark, the da300 was at 1/90th sec, and the k3 focused on the tree in front of the animal! The fisher looks like something out of deep Africa. I expected to see a bear around the house since I've been feeding the birds a little too early this year but I never expected a fisher and a mink within a few days of each other. The mink better watch out!

Wow. This is the kind of shot which is technically terrible but documentarily important. Very cool. We live right by the Fox river but are not quite rural enough to get mink or fishers. I could imagine them nearby though. We do get beaver and muskrat on the river.

Nice shot of the Mink, but for this one, I think manual focus would likely have better chance to nail the shot.
