The Weasel with a Mouse in its Mouth

Thursday, March 25th, 2010

I was at Westwood Nature Center in St. Louis Park enjoying a walk in the warm March weather.  While standing on the boardwalk, I heard some rustling in the reeds. A weasel appeared. He looked me straight in the eyes, as if to greet me and ran right toward me! I was able to take a picture before he jumped off the boardwalk.

In his haste to get away, he dropped his mouse and kept on running. I thought I wouldn’t see him again, but I guess he was hungry. He popped up his head on the other side of the boardwalk. And he paused to check me out. I pointed my lens on the mouse and took a portrait when he collected his prize.
