Had an unexpected opportunity to spend a few minutes with this little guy.

Z9/800mm f6.3

1) First sighting. For us both.


2) Time out to scratch and a good yawn.


3) Notice the subtle change in fur color just behind the front leg. I think maybe it is molting.


4) Checking me out.


5) Running on the beach.


6) Again the difference in fur color is noticeable.

Great shots of a beautiful animal. Love both the portrait poses, and the action running.

They are fidgety things to shoot for sure. Good news is that they don't seem to be too fearful of people. At least the few that I've encountered.

Thanks, John. You certainly have to work quickly. For this set I relocated several times when the little guy ducked under rocks while hunting and couldn't see my movement.

Thanks, George. It acted like it's seen one or two fishermen before.

What a great experience and photos. Like others have said, I can't imagine it is easy to get quality shots of mink. Well done!

Thanks, Karl. I'm thinking it's shedding.

Thanks for commenting, Rick. They definitely don't sit in one place very long.
