This mink scampered about on the causeway for a while, occasionally checking my position.

After a couple of minutes’ singing, this robin was visited by a hovering suitor who mated with her. (It's all on video.)

I love these pictures, especially the pictures with the horse and the heron. Thanks for sharing!
My pleasure, Ulla.
