To take that quote from Monty Python: Wink wind, Nudge nudge, say no more!
Managed to catch the little weasel in the meadow. It may have had something to do in that she (believe it is a "she") was looking into the sun and couldn't see clearly but as I was taking my shots, I actually had time to think that "wow, this little weasel is hanging out with me for a long time". I honestly thought it was at least 10 minutes or more which in weasel time is extremely long. When I checked the duration of shots taken on the camera, it was just over 2 minutes in total. Time certainly seems to stand still when you are in the moment.
And for once, the weasel blinked/winked before I did. (Photo #1)
That "dirty/smudgy" look is not due to melting snow & mud, it is actually the commencement of the weasel's transformation to its summer coat. The pinkish/reddish back feet colouring, however, are most likely the result of "having a vole friend for dinner" (to put a twist on that infamous quote of Hannibal Lecter's in "Silence of the Lambs")! :) :)
Hopefully, I will be able to catch up with this amazing mustelid as its coat colouring progresses into the coming months.
