Nice catch, where you set up on the rock pile waiting on him or didn't you know he was there?

lol no not really, I was cooking dinner and my grand daughter looked out the window and seen him dart across the front yard lol ,...The rock fence is in my front yard and he could go into the rocks and come out the other side so he just played with us for a bit and off he went. I wish I could make up a better story but ....thats what happened lol Dinner was Pork chops, mashed potato's, corn and a garden salad lol and nothing burnt.

Nice, I guess you get 2 ata-boys 1 for the photo and 1 for not using the smoke detector as a food timer.

That is so cute & 'nonmediocre' Jeff! Thanks for sharing it! Haven't seen my little guy since... but I'm still looking. Wonder if they stay in a certain area, or travel wherever...

That's awesome... I searched this forum after we discussed the weasel & only 2 images came up.. so as you said, 'a rare find'. So happy you were able to get some shots of him/her, such a beautiful little creature! :love: I'm still on the 'lookout' for one here...

That looks like a stuffed toy looking out there. These guys are as cute or cuter than those white seal pups that unfortunately face an uncertain future. Are these trapped legally? Hope not, but...
And in many ways, that's the perfect shot composition-wise. Well done.

Nice shot of a rarely seen, and even tougher to photograph specimen.
