This delightful little female popped out in front of me and at the time I just happened to have my camera in hand. She was about 20 feet away and was just taking a look around…………..naturally I froze still as possible and zoomed in quickly. I had about 15 seconds before she was gone. They are amazingly fast and move like a snake. It is common for the mink to manage 3 dens and use them at various times of the year. Each individual requires an area equivalent to 30 acres to sustain them. This is a natural photo in her natural habitat. ( I used a 70 – 300 mm lens and zoomed closer. f 5.6, exposure 1/400 sec, ISO 400, maximum aperture 5, metering mode – pattern ) Location of image – Ottawa River, Pembroke, ON where Muskrat River and Ottawa River join.
