Stoat

Posted by
ursulakatariina (Ed, Sweden) on 8 September 2013 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

Never seen these in the wild before but yesterday I did! What a wonderful little fellow this stoat was...
We were by the lake Stora Le having a little barbecue when someone pointed to the pier and shouted 'There is a squirrel'. I took my camera and saw something moving under the pier. I wondered why a squirrel would be in such place and when this little fellow showed his little face I laughed and only then I started to take pictures.

Nice to see you! I hope you enjoy seeing what I saw earlier.
Please, leave a comment so I know you have been here.

I got a colour spotlight, see it here.

You've been lucky. Image of this creature is a great addition to the collection. I think that you should also try the lottery.
