"ME AND MY SHADOW"

Weasel (Long Tailed) - 8 Photos

 

 

Think it might have been the one day change in the weather to much milder temperatures that brought this charming predator out and more visible. With warmer temperatures, one would assume that small prey such as voles and mice would be coming closer to the surface of the snow.

 

I'll take any reason to see and photograph a busy weasel. Luckily this one, took some pauses and time for poses, in its busy work schedule. 

 

With the sun behind me and shade provided by surrounding trees & shrubbery, it was the perfect scenario for shadow play. 

 

So here is one delightful weasel playing "Me and My Shadow"! (Oh and in Photos #3 & 4 - I swear that's a weasel smile :) !)

Fantastic series! The weasel enjoys the sun and warmth as much as you do. The lighting and shadows make these images appear as a personal connection between you and the smiling weasel. Well captured!

Ah, superb images! Lovely sun and shade photos, weasel's shadows are fantastic. Too bad I can't zoom in to your photos, on mine I see shimmering fur.
I also didn't get your last shots in the snow :(
