Predator encounter

While up in Alaska I was fortunate enough to get a pretty good look at one of the local predators- a short-tailed weasel. I was even able to get video. If you watch, ignore the silly squeaky lip noises and clicking. I saw the little dude zipping around in the brush and, after he darted right up to me once, I was trying to lure him into camera range. Since it worked, the silly noises qualify as "woodcraft" rather than "embarrassing".

Blogger's video quality isn't great, but I'm not YouTube savvy so there it is.

Now that was cool. The squeaking? Serious outdoorsmanship! I can just see the video at Bass Pro and Cabelas: "Predator Calling with Mike"
