Yes. I think the mammal is a mink. Any confirmation?

We will be back in a month or so when the snow melts to see the roughed legged hawks in number.

The little guy standing on the ice looks like a mink to me, and of course an otter further down.

Thanks. The fisher doesn't live in the water like these guys do. It dove under the ice and we didn't see it again.

It was cute whatever it is.

The first weasel looks like a mink. The head poking out of the water looks like an Otter. Are they the same animal?

No, different location. The otter was obvious, I had never seen a mink before. It was the beginning of a very nice day.

@derekkite - wonderful shots. Yes, the first weasel is definitely a mink, as other have said. Minks have more slender, pointier heads than otters. The white on his jaw and chest is interesting - I wonder if he's an escapee or former pet.

Not much shooting/much to shoot lately, but I still practice when I can. I think I've determined that I can reliably shoot my A400 + 1.4x-L at 1/250s with good technique, shooting a brief burst of 4 or 5 frames and at least 2 sharp.

I too confirm it is a mink...

Which model of Takumar 300mm?

It seems there are several models of the Takumar 300mm. In Pentax Forum lens reviews, Model 1 is reviewed poorly and Model 2 quite high. This lens comes up from time to time on eBay, but I have no idea how to determine which model is being offered, and the sellers seem also to have no idea. Wondering if anyone who has detailed experience with these lenses can tell me what to look for, particularly what questions to ask the sellers in order to ascertain which model is up for sale?

Outstanding capture. It also speaks volumes for IQ of the 150~450.
Thankyou!
