[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This surprised me. I live around fresh water lakes only and this Mink seems to have captured a huge lobster that doesn't exhist in this area. It can only be an overgrown Crawfish I guess. At first I thought it was a small Bass. He got it out of some long weeds. He really battled it when he got it up on the rock. Lots of action.


note: cropped, focused
