Ermine in Ottawa

by Al
(Ottawa, Ontario, Canada)

On April 21, 2014, I photographed a stoat (Mustela Erminea) in the woods of Vincent Massey Park about 50 m north of Riverside Dr, across the river from Carleton University.

It was light brown with a white paws and underbelly, very cute.

It was skitterish and moved like a chipmunk or small red squirrel.

I was lucky to get a picture before it disappeared.

My first ermine sighting, its fur was beautiful.
