Image Taken in Michigan's Eastern Upper Peninsula during a partial thaw in early January.  This mink would come up with various types of minnows through a few different holes and immediately eat them.

Great timing to catch the mink coming out of the hole with a minnow in its mouth, Paul. It is certainly checking you out — great eye contact.

You really made the most of your encounter with this feisty little predator, Paul. A great view with the minnow snack. Such a shame the light was so flat on this occasion - but that's what can happen when what could be a golden opportunity comes along!

The general public in my area have already seen this image.  They really like it as is.

Badass shot man! I just saw my first one here in west central Illinois yesterday. Always knew they were around but finding them was a different story.
