Is That a Mink?

Yes!  Can you imagine my surprise when on a recent early morning I looked over the edge of a trout stream and saw this beautiful creature?  Basically, when our eyes met the mink froze in place on a piece of concrete jutting out of the water.  It seemed as surprised to see me as I was to see it.  Without thinking, I raised the lens to my eye and snapped four shots.  Then, as quickly as it appeared, it nimbly dove back into the stream...leaving me amazed at my chance meeting with this "semiaquatic" carnivore belonging to the weasel family.
