Really cool. I'd love to just be able to see one of these guys in the wild.

Wow, beautiful shots especially where he's looking right at you. And just at 300mm? Yikes!

IMO, yours are excellent, but any shot of one here would be unusual.

Best of luck with that! Michigan is named the Wolverine state, but only a few have been sighted since the 1800s.

I don't know what their commonality is in Finland; but there are researchers here in the US/Canada would give an arm to have had the time with one of these big weasels that you did. These are some fantastic shots

There are around 200 in Finland I believe - mainly in the North Karelia region. There are a handful of places where you can photograph them. The above was the result of two 18-hour stints in a hide.

Thanks for the info! :) And it looks like the end justifies the means...I'd definitely enjoy seeing one in the wild.
