A Pine Marten visited our property earlier this week. It's only the third time that I've seen one here in 40 years. It was fairly early in the morning and a real challenge to keep my exposure parameters somewhat balanced. But, out of more than 300 shots, I got more than a few that I'm pleased with.
They are a bold animal and generally unafraid of humans. They are fast and powerful enough to chase Red Squirrels through the treetops and catch them.
