Mink Catching a Smallmouth Bass

Today I was enjoying a quiet morning beside one of my favorite streams when I spotted this mink looking for his breakfast.  Mink are inquisitive, thorough hunters and will explore each hole, brush pile or log they come across...





 
 
When he reentered the water I thought he was heading downstream and out of my life...
 

When suddenly, he dove beneath the surface...

 
When he reappeared he had a fish for his breakfast...
 


He scurried away with his prize, perhaps to share with his mate...

 

Thanks for visiting.  Come back again real soon.
