“Mink on York River II” – York River, near Bancroft, Ontario

Mink on York River

This is the second shot of this little fellow. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I was walking along the York River, planning on  taking some long exposure shots of the rapids when this mink appeared among the rocks. He tried real hard to avoid me seeing him and I found myself dodging and weaving between the rocks to get a clear shot of him. At one point he even went into the rapids and was briefly washed downstream, where he eventually came to shore (that’s why he’s wet). Fortunately for me, my wife, who was also along for the photo shoot, happened to be on the shore and that forced him to come back towards me. After lots of hide-and-seek, he eventually popped his head up long enough for me to get this shot of him, before he disappeared for good.

It is so nice to see wildlife around me and to be able to share those moments and experiences through photography.
