"MORNIN' MINK!"

Mink (North American) - 3 Photos

 

An early morning catch for both me and the mink!

 

She is one amazing mink. In just over an hour, she caught three fish, the largest being the one in the photo.

 

On a side note, the mink changed her normal tactics. She usually catches a fish and then runs off to her favourite grove of trees to polish it off. On these fish runs, however, she caught each fish and then ran back downstream, fish intact each time. (By three different routes, mind you!) So I am wondering, perhaps she has other little mink mouths to feed :)

 

PHOTO #1 - "WINNER, WINNER, FISHY DINNER!" 

PHOTO #2 - "ON TOP OF OLD SMOKEY"

PHOTO #3 - "THE SOUTH END OF A MINK GOING NORTH" - Loved the make-up of the mink's hindfoot/pad!

Beautiful series again!
This mink must consider you a friend of a family now :)
It would be wonderful if there was another little one. I've seen a mink only twice at the boat launch, and so did Ron.
I look forward your encounters with a mink next weekend :)

Really great action shots of a difficult to photograph critter. Your photos always bring these mink to life.
