I previously worked as a news and sports photographer. Recently I have been enjoying wildlife photography. My approach toward bird photos is similar to sports photography. I attempt to capture mostly action and hopefully a unique perspective.
It’s been a while since I have seen any minks scampering around the rocks along the marsh. So I thought it might be a good day to bring out some never before seen file shots of a couple of our cute little furry friends!
Ein hübscher Karl 🙂
Er ist sehr nett! 🐻 🙂
I’d love to say what I really feel but instead I will say what a lovely little creature !
I’m pretty sure I know what you are thinking and I agree and understand.
Thanks for checking out the little guy. 🙂
I LOVE your blog ! How can I not> Reciprocation appreciated Phil…..
Sono fantastiche, che animaletto stupendo. E osano usarlo per le pellicce… mah!!! E’ una cosa che non sopporto!
Un caro saluto, Patrizia
Non mi piace che usano un animale bellissimo come per la sua pelliccia. Sembra molto meglio sul visone. 😥
Spectacular shots. I’d call those guys friends too!
They are like having a couple of cats running around the place. One day I was out at the marsh and two mink started chasing each other and they both came running right toward and one ran between my legs and the other ran next to my leg while I was standing there. Too funny!
I remember the exact day too it was an Easter Sunday.
Amazing! I hope the gators didn’t get them! lol
We saw a gator lunge at one once but the mink escaped. They are more likely to get hit by a car when they start running around like squirrels,
Ahhhh what a cutie!
They really are cute! Makes me want to have one around. Wonder if it would get along with my cat? 🐱
Adorable! I don’t know why anyone would want to turn them into coats. 😦
They are cute and I agree their fur looks much better where it belongs, on the mink.
ummm… don’t know what’s wrong, but I’m not getting the images?????
They should be there. I was doing a bit of site maintenance at one point, maybe that’s when you looked?
Strange…. still not getting the images just now. Tried two other browers and they also aren’t showing the images.
Lyle said he wasn’t seeing the photo in the Reader but did see everything once he opened the post.
I just tried a fix, let me know if the photo shows up like normal if you get a minute to check again.
Thanks… I’m getting them now and they were well worth it!!!! 😀 (I don’t do Reader)
I wonder if a lot of people didn’t see them at first. I don’t view my own blog through the Reader, I always just click a direct web link. Doing that it showed up for me as normal yesterday using an iPad, Chrome, or IE in Windows. Odd.
Thanks for re-checking!
Smashing images Phil, they are cute indeed!
Thanks much Adrian and yes they sure are cute little guys!
They certainly have no fear, which is what makes them such largescale killers of wildlife, unfortunately. The greenkeepers on the golfcourse where Kevin plays, saw the fish population shrinking and set a trap for mink. Turns out the “mink” were otters! Wonderful to watch them around the place!
The mink, otters, and cormorants will really do a job on fish in a small lake. But so it goes in nature I suppose.
I know people with back yard ornamental fish ponds that get regular visits from the great blue heron. They are not as easy to chase away as you might think.
Pretty but a pest species back home.
Awww… Yeah but cuteness factor is high! 🙂
Beyond adorable. And further proof as to why I refuse to wear fur.
Oh yes, the cuteness factor is strong here!
And good for you. You are truly one smart blond.
Say hi to Ted and NC for me.
Minks are cute, but not to those of us with chickens. Sure they look like sweet little cuddlers… but have no doubts – they’re vicious killers!
I do believe they have quite an appetite. They mostly hunt for fish around here. They are cute though.
These little guys are the cutest ever. Wonder if they’d get along with our cats! 🙂 You just want to pick one up and cuddle it.!
I was thinking of bringing one home for the kitty to play with. 🐱 I don’t think the cat would want his nose bit though. 🙂
Beautiful little animal.
They sure are cute. 🐻
