Back in June I spent some time photographing one of these rarely seen creatures. Last weekend I returned to the same general area where I had heard rumors of an entire family of American minks hanging out.
It appears I was a bit late to the party as the little ones have grown and started to disperse. However, I did get to see two of them (separately) and both gave me some nice shots.
Judging by the size of this one versus the other I saw that day, this one is a juvenile and it was absolutely adorable. Being young, it wasn’t quite as shy as older ones and at different points seemed just as interested in me as I was in it.
