Great shots, Jürgen :)

I caught a glimpse of one just last week (first time I ever saw one in its fancy winter whites) but didn't manage to get a photo.

I Had a lucky shot of a Stoat in January although it only had a little extra white on the muzzle, mustelids are my favourite group of animals (even above the herps) although very difficult to get to grips with. I would love to see/photograph a wolverine or a fisher. Just noticed they look like two different stoats? double luck.

He was very much surprised that a human was smart enough to come that close!

Nice mammals Jurgen and Carl!!! I also love mustelids!! Some years ago I found a swimming pool with a Vipera latastei inside. I rescued it. And after 10 days I return and I found this poor animal inside! It was a very nice experience to see so close this shy and nice animal. Finally I use a table and it could escape quickly!! (I already talked with a friend in the "Junta de Andalucia" and they have changed the swimming pool to avoid this. This place is in the middle of the National Park of Sierra Nevada, a very "protected" area in Granada and Almeria...)

Another lucky spot today (the shot was easy) whilst checking out a possible new site for adders (zero) I spotted this little fella a leveret, (thats cuta than any cat Bobby), the problem is both Brown Hares and Mountain Hares occur in the region, any hare experts out there who knows which species it is? Two miles along the road an unfortunate DOR adult Mountain Hare.
