Some more Pine Marten shots from my wee adventure on the Scottish West Coast:

1






2 - daisy left in ....... perhaps she's trying to hide behind it






3






4 - checking the lie of the land before moving closer.






5






6






Comments welcome

David, I searched high, I searched low, I searched woods, open land and not a pine marten to be found....but these my friend are drop dead gorgeous and I would have been in heaven just to see let alone get even one shot like these. What a beautiful set

the US has a different species - very shy & hard to see; not too many of them either

David - was this animal shy, secretive when you tried to photograph it?

David, these are awesome. #5 takes the prize for me. Reminds of a pose of a bear cub in a tree. What a great expression as well. Excellent, excellent work finding, and successfully photographing them.

rw, thanks for stopping by. We were lucky enough to have a family of Pine Martens close to us. We didn't see much of the male. We saw the female (and mother) a good number of times and each time she appeared she stood up on her hind legs to check out the place (for predators ?) before she moved closer. Once mum was in the kits followed, (photos to come). They were certainly skittish and very cautious but I wouldn't have said secretive.

Another fantastic set of these cute little guys David, what a treat for you.
All of these are good, but the last two images are superb and contest worthy if you're so inclined... #5 is brilliant my friend.
Excellent work.

Still great and going strong David.
#5 is my favorite, a classic portrait. I like his teeth. Looks like he uses Colgate!

The other's are exceptional also!

Is this your secret Martin? Or a one off encounter?

Thank you Craig. Unfortunately the Pine Martens are not my wee secret, I went to where I knew they would be. The teeth in #5 were a bit of a bonus.
