    Wow – where did you find him?

      He was in the junkyard. He came within a foot of me a couple of times but my 300mm was too long to focus. He moved quickly and the light conditions varied a lot as he changed positions. It was a challenging shoot. I just wish the light wouldn’t have been so harsh. It’s rare to see these. It’s the second one I’ve seen. The other one I saw during winter about 30 years ago.

        I’ve never seen one before. His fingers/claws(?) are so long. And you caught the catch light.

    Brian had one of these on the farm a few years ago — it was all white. Do their coats change with the seasons??? I don’t know. Great pic.

      Thanks. I do think the coat changes with the seasons. The only other one I’ve seen had a white coat and it was winter.

    I like that he is hiding and that we can only see one eye.

      That’s one of the things I like about it to Ben.
