Jumping back to the end of October and the charmed encounter I had with this little one. Mink are not often seen and if they are, they are not ones to linger, preferring not to be in the limelight. This one, however, was an exception.
For almost a half hour it entertained myself and others as it scampered up and down the South Platte River and even caught a fish. Here, it pauses briefly on top of a rock on the opposite riverbank, giving a nice pose.
