The Toronto Islands are a short ferry ride from downtown Toronto and are usually a pleasure to visit – the little cafe at the eastern end of the islands is a fine spot for a bite to eat or a drink. On this occasion, I was on the islands with a view to getting some after dark shots of the Toronto skyline.

Arriving in the early evening, I had time to have a pleasant stroll around first and encountered this splendid little chap fishing: it’s an American Mink (Neovison vison) and it’s where it’s supposed to be – they’re not uncommon in the UK, but they’re introduced there and viewed as a damaging invasive species.

This one seemed to be having a splendid time splashing about in the lake and eventually managed to catch tea, apparently unconcerned by the small crowd of over-evolved simians that were watching.
