Tree Weasel - Spring Creek Ranch, Jackson Hole, WY
I was able to spend the last day of 2010 doing one of my favorite things…photographing a beautiful and relatively uncommon critter.

Pine martens are one of the only local weasels that regularly spend time in trees (often pursuing red squirrels) and this individual put on a phenomenal show! We commonly encounter their unique track pattern in the snow but only see the animal itself a handful of times each year. Thanks to Lance, Sophie and Steve for the heads-up on this great sighting!
