Stoat's and Weasel's

This selection of images represents one of my most memorable
encounters with the natural world. To see a Stoat or a Weasel
in the wild is something very special, you normally only manage a
fleeting glimpse as one runs across a path or along a verge in
pursuit of a rabbit or a vole. I count myself very lucky to have
captured these images and the experience will stay with me
for the rest of my days I'm sure.

To save any confusion, the first three images are the Weasel's
and the last four the Stoat's. The easy way to tell them apart is
by the tail, as you can see, the Stoat has a long tail with a black
tip, where as a Weasel has a very short tail with no black tip.
