weasel 3

weasel 3

longtail weasel, Mustela frenata Big Cottonwood Canyon, Wasatch Mts, Utah. This fellow popped up out of a snowbank near me. He ran a fast semicircle around me as close as 2m, then returned to his burrow. He re-emerged with a dead vole and bounded off. I guess he thought I might steal his lunch.

Super picture.

I haven't seen one of those fellows in a while.
Great "portrait".
