About Today’s Photo:
Yesterday morning we saw something swimming in our pond and discovered that there was a mink and a muskrat visiting! I grabbed my camera in the hopes of snapping a shot or two before they ran off, but both critters were not at all shy and hung out for a good 15 minutes—the muskrat swimming about and the mink swimming then running around the perimeter of the pond. He must have run around 6 times passing about 5 feet in front of me several times! Check out the recent post on my Photography Blog for another shot.
