Re: Ermine

At first look I thought it was a doll, but after going thru the thread only I realized this is a true living animal. Well done! You nailed the focus and exposure.

Thanks, I can very much ensure you that it is real. Lol

Cool shot!

Amazed you took a D5 with 500pf while getting a Xmas tree.   Did you take the family shots from the parking lot?     

(Yes, I know it is a ILC)

Lol. The area where we got the tree is one I frequently see Moose and Elk. Hence the wildlife setup. I used my cell phone for the tree cutting fun. Although I could have used the 500mm if I suggested to my wife that SHE cut it down.

Sweet, I wish I had place like that close.  Get a tree and wildlife shots in parallel, priceless!

Best wildlife I would have been able to shoot at our local tree place would be a barn cat or a chicken.

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.

Yes. Squeaking is the wildlife photographer's magic spell! It works particularly well on members of the weasel family. I generate the sound by kissing the back of my hand.
