Whitemud Park, Edmonton, AB, Canada
November 6, 2011
Walked through the Whitemud Park hoping to find an owl or two, but no success. However, found this curious weasel near the viewing platform. I only got two shots; it ran away in my second frame because of my flash.
This is an edited photo. The unedited photo contains a illuminated tree next to the weasel, some cyan-coloured eyes from the flash output, and may be a few twigs behind the weasel. If you wish to see the original, I'm more than happy to share that. Nonetheless, the weasel was still out in the open in the same spot.
Also, I ran into another Flickrite named Clyde. We were talking about weasels at Hawrelak Park before I went to Whitemud Park.
If I made a mistake in the "long-tailed" ID, please feel free to correct me. Thanks!

After a good photography session with the Black Terns, Ray and I explored the Beaumont area and found a fox den. There were 3 foxes at that time. We got a few good shots from a distance before they hid themselves.

Another closeup opportunity of a Coyote, probably one of my favourite encounters. This one stared at me for a few seconds before walking away. If you know a good title for this shot, rather than just a simple title, feel free to let me know. Thanks and enjoy!
