Portrait of a shy Mink
Lens: FA*250-600 Camera: Pentax K-1 Photo Location: Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu ISO: 2500 Shutter Speed: 1/640s Aperture: F8 
Posted By: Weevil, 03-14-2018, 04:56 PM

When to the dock to look/shoot water birds, but only found this fellow on the edges of the dock... he was playing a new game called "Guess from what hole I will escape"!

K-1 + FA*250-600 @ 600mm (close to the closest focal distance)

It was so close that I needed to close down a stop to F8 to get more DoF.

That is why he is "shy".... to maintain that status.

LOL! Minks for coats are farmed! I wonder if anyone still raises them for fur coats with all the anti fur folks running around.

Permanent residents moved into the area where I now live to provide services to people who trapped animals like that - so, I'm guessing the extroverts were removed from the gene pool before they had time to pass their extrovert genetic material forward.
