Mighty Mink

While out at a local lake on our kayaks we were treated to a very unexpected sight…a mink hunting crawfish. This guy/gal was working the shoreline and caught at least two crawfish while we watched from out in the lake on our kayaks. We had no idea mink lived along the shores of this lake and have never seen one before. Another reminder that those little moments sure can make your day.

River Crossing

Photographing wildlife from a moving kayak is fun but the results are always uncertain due to the movement of the river and the subject. Luck happened to be on our side as we watched this elk in Grand Teton National Park.
