    Just for fun, a weasel. Warning: Relatively high cute-factor

    First time I ever saw a weasel in person; I was ecstatic because I've always wanted to see/photograph one. Unfortunately, more of a "snapshot" pic, as opposed to the more natural/artistic images I prefer to create. The boardwalk sucks, the bright sun behind the head sucks, the angle looking down sucks. Other than that, I like the image and think it's technically pretty nice.

    I may have been able to get a better shot but a jogger was coming up behind the weasel and so it didn't stay long enough.

    These guys are off the charts cute, especially in their behavior and movements. It's like they are on lsd

    Amazing to catch this fellow at all - they are so shy, and quick, in my experience. And a great result.

    Great capture. I have yet to see one face to face let alone photograph one.

    Wow! Nice shot! And how lucky you are, I still have not seen those in person yet. Tried to do some shots of a hedgehog once, but it was dark, and while I was setting the camera (it was packed as I was going home) he ran away Hope I get another chance. Congratz!

    Very nice, Matt. Now that I have sold your image three times, I agree that it sucks so much that you ought to delete all copies of it from your computer system.

    Oh Mike, LOL. If that were really true, I'd offer to hire you as a business consultant and marketing specialist for when I start trying to make a profit
