Periscope Up

An Ermine aka Short Tail Weasel pops up out of the snow as it hunts voles. At one point while this ermine and possibly a second were under the snow two voles surfaced and scurried away. The ermine is lightning fast ..........small with the much larger males at between 7.8 and 12 inches ( approx.) long plus a tail from 3 to 4 inches in length...the tip of the tail is black as shown in my previous posting of another ermine...
