Wildlife and Nature Photography by Larry Gambon

Pine Marten

Pine Martens are related to mink, otters, badgers, wolverines, weasels, and skunks. I had only seen one other before this and it was way too far away to photograph. This guy snuck up on us while we were sitting at a picnic table at Colter Bay in Grand Teton NP catching some breakfast this past May. Of course, my gear was in the car. I sprinted to the car and grabbed a camera and came back to hunt up the critter. He was still there! I crept in to the woods where the Marten dove into a pile of downed trees. I waited him out and sure enough: Gotcha!
