Re: Ermine

well captured, cute creature, I was surprised to find out that this cute and innocent looking creature has been "nominated as one of the world's top 100 worst invaders and has had a devastating effect on native bird populations in New Zealand" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stoat

Re: Ermine

just stunning ! In addition you nailed the exposure too !, white animal, snow, add in wood and stone too in one image. The few times I've seen these guys they are always on move, quickly, never stopping to pose, as you've shown. Did you pay it a modeling fee ?

If your search for a tree turned out half as well as the encounter with the ermine you had a very productive outing.

Very nicely done.

Thanks. He was definitely curious. It's been a couple of years since I last saw one and that one went in a hole and didn't come out. Crazy thing is that the day after I shot this one I saw another one in a completely different area. He was camera shy though and ran off.

That is a very attractive animal.  I don't remember seeing a photo of one before.  You have done a very good photo.

I had it along because Moose frequent that area. Didn't see any Moose but this more than made up for it.

Great photo of a beautiful animal. I've had some luck in getting photos of both weasels and mink by "squeaking" with my lips. The sound causes them to freeze for a moment, or even to approach, as they look for an easy meal.

Thanks. Interesting approach. I'll have to remember that when I see one again.
