Good eye! Those little fellas are cool. I was lucky enough to see a fisher recently near me though it moved too quickly for me to get a photo.

I saw a super cute stoat (also called ermine when in winter coat) on Point 13,201 today.

Nice images, I had one run under a chairlift I was on before, they are pretty cool!

Had three cool sightings recently, but was not able to get any photos:

Saw:
Two Pileated Woodpeckers - which are huge and the first time I've ever seen them
A fisher
An ermine in a white winter coloring.

The first time I saw a pileated woodpecker, I thought it was a lawn decoration....until it flew away.
Since that sighting, I have seen a pair of them which visited a dead tree in my yard a few days last year. :)

A fox I saw on top of a peak in Jeffco today. I'm pretty sure these rocks are his home!
