The Mink

Early this morning I was exploring a wetlands area with my camera and I spotted a mink hiding in the grasses and rocks along the edge of the marsh. The mink ( Neovison vision ) has chocolate brown fur which is dense and lustrous and serves as insulation even in water. The mink doesn’t have webbed feet, but it swims and dives well. They eat small fish, crustaceans, amphibians and birds. Click on the image to see a larger version.
