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.Mink

It dove into a pond and within fifteen seconds surfaced with a bullhead catfish.Mink

Its coat does look warm and luxurious. Mink

This one was at the south boat ramp at North Sterling State Park.Mink
