"MINK CANDIDS"

Mink (North American) - 6 Photos

 

A definition of a "candid shot" can be "a candid photo of an unplanned moment". I suppose that's a description of all the wildlife photography that I have done and will do. Nothing is ever planned and I never know who is going to appear in frame, let alone what they will do. That's the wonderful aspect of wildlife photography and it can be the disappointment as well. But those moments when everything comes together, is why I enjoy & love it so much.

 

So here are some "candid" shots of our mink family. And yes, I have given them names. I know that's considered "anthropomorphism" or the attribution of human traits, emotions or intentions to animals but frankly, I can't go on calling them Mink #1, Mink #2 and Mink #3. I will probably not recognize them on their own but hopefully, maybe I can.

 

PHOTO #1 - "YEAH RIGHT, WE'VE ALL SEEN THAT OLD STEVE MARTIN GAG" - (Sparky - What else could you call a star fisherman)

Beautiful little family and beautiful photos!
How do you distinguish between them?! I think in nature you'll see the size better. I also noticed that Sparky has a darker fur above his nose.
Amazing closeups of their little faces too. Congratulations on your "documentary" : )

Great series! The unintended candids are the natural look we all strive for. Well done!
