Black Capped Chickadee
I stumbled on this mink on the prowl and was hoping he would come back towards me for a great face-first shot on the log. I sat down and waited. While waiting, I heard the brush explode to my left and saw a coyote running away from me:( I always miss the coyotes when they are close!
This muskrat encounter was weird. I spotted him while on my bike about 10 feet away. He went down along the canal, and I got off my bike, got my camera out of the bag, got it set, and he came up again right in front of me! It was busily gathering grass for his den, I assume. Even more strange, it came up four times for more grass, even though I was snapping photos just 6 or 7 feet away!
