I can count on one hand the number to time I’ve seen weasels in the wild. Each time has been memorable. I’ve seen two Longtail Weasels in Colorado. This is my first Shortail Weasel. I saw him taking a late Sunday afternoon walk in Dogtown. I watched him for about five minutes as he scampered around the brambles and a long a stone wall.
I only got two shots off. I had to take the lens out of autofocus mode and focus the shots manually. It was much easier to do in the good old days with manual lenses and cameras. The manual focus rings on these autofocus lenses are rather course. However for shooting through the brambles, between sticks and twigs, it was the only way to document my weasel.
