Yellowstone National Park - Super Weasel!!

October, 2006

Good things come in small packages, and I think that one of the most amazing experiences I had in Yellowstone this time around had to be the antics of this short-tailed weasel (also called an Ermine). With a fresh rodent kill in its' jaws it bounded from rock to rock at high speed and never even slowed or dropped dinner! This animal equivelant of superman had me chuckling as I tried to capture such strength and agility in a photo...if only I could hand hold my 300mm f2.8 lens and camera body and then run as fast as this weasel, I might be a super hero too!
