I'm happy to say this shot made the Explore front page today. Thanks for all the comments and faves.

 

Happy Furry Friday.

 

I visited Algonquin Park yesterday -- first time in winter -- and I really hit the jackpot. Saw a herd of white-tail deer, another red fox (the second this week!), some grey jays (finally!) and this beautiful little pine marten. I've never seen one of these before. He was smaller than I expected and furrier. He looks quite cuddly but he has some serious teeth. You can see him leaping through the snow below.

 

The only thing on my wish list that I missed this time was a bull moose with full antlers. Ah well, something to look forward to. You shouldn't get everything you want all at once. :-)
