Intense expression! A lovely little critter..though the birds I'm sure don't think so! I've never seen one of these! Wonderful clarity and detail..and well spotted! Congrats Gord!

The fur of this guy is almost as valuable as mink in the fur industry...he better be careful! They are funny and comical creatures. Super capture of his quizzical face, terrific exposure! Congrats on your win today!

Superbly observed image of this perky Pine Marten intent on its next meal...wonderful shadows as it peers out from under the tree limbs! Congratulations on your POTD, Gord!

WTG, Gord!!!  Terrific exposure and an excellent shot of this little pine martin with a grand expression as he about to stalk something for his lunch.  Congrats on another super capture!
