eventful morning

I saw a mink today. And I got him on film for just a second...two frames...and even these are poor.

I thought he was an otter*, but someone there explained that he was indeed, a mink. It's the first time I've ever seen a mink in real life.



I also saw a newborn...made a quick sketch.




*a little trivia:
'Otter' shares its etymology with 'water' and 'winter'.

I think (live) minks are cute, although the only ones I remember seeing were in the film Gorky Park.
