As I was shooting pictures along the banks of the Tennessee River, I spotted this young mink emerging from under big rocks. He was as surprised as I was.

    I had written a comment before but my computer timed out before I could get the comment to go through and it took awhile to get back to your site...not sure what happened but it is back in running order now....This is a great shot and a nice surprise for you that you were not expecting but I'll bet you had to be quick before it ran away...Great timing.

    Nice lighting!! We see them along the Boise River too, when we go fishing. They are just so cool!

    That is fantastic, Don. You ought to report that to the Tennessee Dept. of Environment and Conservation, as I am not sure they are known to be in part of the state.
