Here’s one of our little mink friends from a while back bopping around the edge of the salt marsh among the dried reeds.
His face is still a bit wet from poking around in the water hunting for a fish, but the fur will dry quickly. They often go in and out of the water several times searching for a tasty meal.
E’ bellissimo, ha un musetto simpaticissimo. Grazie per queste belle foto Phil.
grazie pat, sono felice che ti piace le foto!
love, love, love!! I have never seen a mink in real life. Excellent photo, as usual!!
Thanks, glad you liked seeing the cute little guy!
I really like that second shot. The attention, the eyes … gorgeous animal.
They are cool little animals. I think he heard my camera click and looked at me for that second shot. Nice of the little guy to cooperate.
Cool shots, Phil. These are neat creatures.
Thanks Jane, and yes they are fun to see.
Destructive little creatures but rather cute! Great pics, Phil!
Lucky for us there are not so many of these guys, and they are not in areas where they could potentially create problems. So we are always happy to see one do a surprise pop up. 🙂
What a cute animal, but I bet they are feisty. We have them here, but I never saw one. I like the second photo, it looks like it discovered you too.
They can be a bit feisty and if startled can emit a musky odor similar to a skunk but not as strong. Fun little guys though. 🙂
He’s so cute. He’s looking right at you in that last one. Great catch.
I think he might have heard the camera clicked and that’s when I grabbed that second shot when he looked at me.
Thanks for checking these out.
He knows you are there! What a cute little guy. Love that dribble!
These little guys remind me of cats more then any other animal. I have had two chasing each other, run right between and next to my legs like I wasn’t even there. Funny critters. 🙂
What a cute and beautiful little furry friend….he knows you are there and looked so cute, looking straight at you…
He reminded me of my cat, giving me that cute little look. 🙂
