A Rather Inquisitive Long-Tailed Weasel

A long-tailed weasel seemed just as curious about me as I was about her on a chilly November afternoon. She was resting under a log as I was making my way down a talus field. I noticed a big scar above her eye and started capturing the moment- she is a weasel who's had quite a life! She was really mellow and we spent a nice 10 minutes or so together.
