A couple of weeks ago I spent a few days photographing a family of Stoats. Having photographed these animals before I knew it wasn't going to be easy and they lived up to expectations. There were six young with their mother who spent the whole time catching food for them. A lot the the shots I took were of the young waiting for her to return. They literally don't keep still for more than a second, in most cases by the time you've pointed the camera at them they have gone. A lot of patience and many hours were needed for these shots, but a very enjoyable couple of days.
