An internationally known naturalist, once remarked in conversation that minks appear to have had a few strong coffees before heading out on hunting expeditions.
That got me thinking, what would you call a coffee beverage named after a mink? Well "A Minkaccino" of course, a derivative of the Mochaccino. The actual Mochaccino consists of a double expresso shot, foamed milk & an additional flavour. I've broken down the components and labelled them accordingly on Photo #1.
The remaining six photos were taken this past weekend. I was photographing a Great Blue Heron, at the time, when into the frame came this coffee coloured bouncing mink. And as you can see from the photos, it definitely had spring and "Spring" in its step, while it scoured the creek bank for food.
Don't blink, there goes the mink!
