Mink pics

10 posts in this topic

I came home today and saw a flurry of action behind the house and it was a mink and he had just killed a muskrat. My boy kept the mink away while I got the camera and I got a few pics. All shot with 100-400L at 400mm, f8, and AV mode.

C & C welcome

mink coming back and not sure what to make of the new guy sitting on the grass.

Here the mink is carrying the muskrat away, it was a big muskrat and he had no trouble running with it.

Great series of captures, DMN! Mighty tough to get good mink shots since they almost never stop moving. Excellent!

Steve, I know what you say about moving fast, it was hard to try to keep the focus point on him. I also wish I would have had the exposure compensated negative a little as on some closer shots I blew the highlights on some sweat on the tips of his hair pretty bad.

Thanks

Yea, it worked on me, at the speed he was running around he would have been in my lap in a nano second. I made a judgement call that I would just as soon not have that.

    • New ABC / WaPo Poll Shows Drop In Trump Favorability Courtesy Of Aggressive "Oversamples" Jan 17, 2017 3:42 PM   In the month leading up to the election on November 8th, we repeatedly demonstrated how the mainstream media polls from the likes of ABC/Washington Post, CNN and Reuters repeatedly manipulated their poll samples to engineer their desired results, namely a large Hillary Clinton lead (see "New Podesta Email Exposes Playbook For Rigging Polls Through 'Oversamples'" and "ABC/Wapo Effectively Admit To Poll Tampering As Hillary's "Lead" Shrinks To 2-Points").  In fact, just 16 days prior to the election an ABC/Wapo poll showed a 12-point lead for Hillary, a result that obviously turned out to be embarrassingly wrong for the pollsters. But, proving they still got it, ABC/Washington Post and CNN are out with a pair of polls on Trump's favorability this morning that sport some of the most egregious "oversamples" we've seen.  The ABC/Wapo poll showed an 8-point sampling margin for Democrats with only 23% of the results taken from Republicans...   ...while the CNN poll showed a similar 8-point advantage for Democrats with only 24% of respondents identifying as Republicans.
