Other birds and animals at the bog.
I've never seen a Fisher and I didn't know what I had photographed in the Sax-Zim Bog. I learned that this is a woodland mammal (a member of the weasel family) that is somewhat larger than a big house cat with a long bushy tail and fierce looking claws and teeth. I watched it from the car and took photos out the window for several minutes before it hurried off in to the woods. Very exciting to see.
[Edit: It turns out that this photo is a pretty big deal - sightings of Fishers in the Bog area are very rare and photos even rarer.]
