It pays to always have your camera around, and to be patient! We were sitting on our bench in the back by our pond (we do this often), and lo and behold! A critter!
I swung the zoom lens into action and voila! A WEASEL! He was hard to get a picture of, I’ve never seen a mammal zoom through the woods that fast.
Actually, it’s an “ermine” weasel, a short-tailed weasel – noted by the black tip of the tail. In the winter he’ll be white.
So cool. Poor chickens, yet another creature that eats them…
