While visiting a wildlife area this afternoon to watch the resident Great Horned Owl and her chicks, I saw this mink pop up beside the road about 20 feet away. It looked around for about 30 seconds, then turned and disappeared back into the thicket, but not before I got some nice closeups of it...

Super shot for spur of the moment Rocky! Why don't these things ever happen to me? :)
