It's a Stoat Colleen, they are quite strong for their size.

Yes - they are powerful and rabbits are their preferred prey.
Great to get a shot, Ali!

Thanks, I just read up about Stoats, had never heard of them.....they look so gentle and tiny..Grin they can kill rabbits up to 10x their size....also known as weasels...that's why I love epz, one learns so much on here...
Have just noticed he is sticking out his tongue in eager anticipation of lunch...amazing shot...

A stoat or a weasel? One is stoatally different the other is weasily recognised. I haven't a clue and I don't for a minute doubt that you know your small mammals Ali so this is just a cheap joke at your expense. Great image.

Phil.

Yes, fearsome little hunters indeed. It's hard to catch a glimpse of them and so much more difficult to capture a shot like this. Well done indeed.

A wonderful natural history image Ali, that is a big lunch! I'm sure Simon will have a few rabbit recipes for us when he sees this!Wink It is like David slaying Goliath, stoats and other mustelids are fiercesome little creatures. I have two ferrets and they are feisty characters, they have often killed rats and wood pigeons that have strayed into the garden when they have been around!

What a cracking good Lunch image, Ali...!
As others have said, Stoats can be skittish, so you have done very well, indeed.
I'd love to see 'Farmer Ed', with his two ferrets (one down each trouser leg, preferably...Blush )
