This little fellow found the caribou hides we had stretched out in front.
He has been gnawing bits off
hiss-growling and tik-tiking at us
before scampering off when we get too near.
I hadn't before realized how varied Pine Marten vocalizations can be.
His coat is extra glossy, perhaps because of the bones he's found in our yard.
Such a handsome fur would've brought in a few hundred dollars this year I imagine,
but it couldn't be worth more to anyone other than him.
Here is someone else who can't help herself and is inspired to dress beautifully every day.
And here's her footwear of which I too am proud.
