My fav time to shoot Mink is at ice out time in the spring, you get these holes in the ice the animals are just completely attracted to and they will tolerate our intrusion a little better.
I think the 7DII can be pushed up a long way and tend to shoot dark in some situations. Sometimes I need the speed to eliminate the motion blur its the real killer of images. When its down to business time I don't want any whites in the burnt zone and the 7DII loves to go to far, I guess they all do.
Some of my best stuff has come from this dark RAW files for just this same reason, even in super white conditions I tend to shoot on the dark side. Seems I'm always trying to make a f5.6 lens look like a f4 or better.
It obvious by your Flickr that you don't have much to learn from me.
If you think Mink are tough your gona have to try your hand at Mr Pine Marten... Its like trying to shoot a speeding bullet.

Again let me say I appreciate your input and thanks for the comment. You've given me some ideas to play with.
This Pine Martin is just great. Don't know who mentioned it or what forum or thread it was in but I agree with them when they said you need to start work on a book. You would have a best seller on your hands.
