This is a surprise shot of a weasel that snuck up on me. I was trying to shoot a Bumble Bee on a flower, when I heard a rustling in the underbrush behind me. This guy was just a few feet away, and when I turned to see what was making the noise, he quickly darted under the thick brush. To my surprise, he popped up again, a bit further away, and waited just long enough for me to try to focus and snap two photos. I didn’t quite get the sharpest image, but I liked his pose.
