Caught this little fella with me K-30. He moved pretty quickly and the pics were taken through me kitchen window. More pics at the Copy link though you will have to download them as they do not seem to play in a browser.
So which is he/she ?
:cool:

Took me a while to find the critter but I'm assuming the mystery creature is more or less smack bang in the middle of the pic, amongst those maroon coloured plants.

It's a giant rat, standing upright, tap dancing :D

No need for you to use Specsav****s yet then. :lol:

Rat indeed, the critters far too pretty for a rat. :D

Looks like a little stoat to me, the little bugger...Like Flopp's it took me a while scanning to find him but yep if its not you mucking us around with one of your gnomes, then it looks like a wee stoat!

Stoats are more common than Weasels, if you got a glimpse of a black-tip tail, it was a Stoat.

It may, however, have been a Pine Martin. :)

Thanks guys. There are more shots in the linky I posted.
The little fella moved so quick it was hard to really see anything in detail. I'm almost sure that there was no black tip to the tail. Difficult to say how big he was, probably between four to six inches long.Very cute though. :D
