It is rare to see a mink along the South Platte on the plains. Usually it provides only a fleeting glance. The one below was more obliging. When I first saw it loping along it was so large I mistook it for a fox.
I suspect it was nearsighted.
It dove into a pond and within fifteen seconds surfaced with a bullhead catfish.
Its coat does look warm and luxurious.
This one was at the south boat ramp at North Sterling State Park.
