I saw one of these cute little creatures on my way through the graveyard the other day. It’s a shortcut to the subway station… Anyway, a movement caught my eye, and at first I thought it was a mouse but then I realized that the teeny tiny little critter poking it’s head out from under a tombstone was a Stoat, also known as an Ermine. He obviously had places to go and people to see, but though I stopped and stood very still he wasn’t too happy with my rubbernecking. He finally gathered his courage and made a dash across the snow to find cover under another stone.
He was really cute, and much smaller than I imagined.
