Ermine/Weasel

The cutest little critter showed its’ self the other day. It was a Weasel that had changed into his winter coat – and now he’s called an Ermine! He was zipping around getting ready for winter.

I watched him as he struggled with a packet of string cheese that I had thrown in the garbage the other day.

The string cheese was almost as big as the Weasel and he had a heck of a time moving it around. I felt sorry for him and I also didn’t want him to harm himself by eating the plastic wrap so I went out and unwrapped it for him. He could certainly have the cheese and he promptly carried it off to his hiding spot.

It’s interesting to see that he is changing from his summer coat of brown fur to his winter coat that will be snow white except for the black tip of his tail.
