MINK crossing the fallen stems of last year's cattails
I have seen a mink before but until a couple of weeks ago I had never gotten a good photo of one. Finally one day when I was taking photos at a local pond, I got lucky when a mink came ashore within range of my camera's lens. I say "lucky" because I suspect this mink was quite young, not people savvy.
Actually, I was taking photos of a great blue heron, which was really too far out in the pond for my lens to take take a good photo. I was standing very still hoping that the heron might move closer to me when I noticed the mink swimming into shore. I refocused my camera and...
Hiding under a pile of cattails
click! The mink heard my camera and scurried to hide. I waited a few minutes until the mink came out of its hiding place. The second click must not have seemed so scary, because the mink came all the way out and...
MINK looking straight at my lens
stood on its two hind legs to see if the coast was clear.
OOPS! That was the end of my photo op!
