Breakfast is Served
« on: March 11, 2013, 04:27:46 PM »
A Red-breasted Merganser drake enjoying an early morning breakfast of Goby.  This was taken at one of my usual haunts... our local harbor.  The Goby is an invasive species here so it's nice to see this duck reducing the population.   :D

Shot with 1D4, 300/2.8L IS plus 2xTC III



Thanks for looking.

I think it is a ferret...no?
I think you are right ... but from this angle it looks so much like a rat.

Weasels are great hunters - I once saw one dragging a small rabbit, probably heavier that the weasel itself.

Great shot!
