    Default Beautiful Mink Coat

    I followed this little guy and its mate down the banks of Fish Creek yesterday for quite a while. They aren't the least bit camera shy. It stopped in a pool of light reflected from the river for this shot. All the great stars know where the best light is...

    Casil, I lost them from time to time but they always came back to the river and moving downstream. I just jogged down the path 50 meters and waited for them.

    cheers
