Your pictures are georgeous, lucky you. What a great sighting. I was walking in a forest near Auchenblae in April going to watch the Granite City Rally drive through the stages with a camera at the ready for action, when and what waked out in front of me a Pine Martin with something in its mouth, I was so shocked by the sight that I never lifted the camera off my shoulder :oops: what a fool. Have not been back yet but I will be !!!

Thanks Gail!
Always wanted to photograph them ever since I saw one run across the road with a blackbird in its mouth at 4:00am on the road to the Caper watch at Garten!
The only other one Ive seen a few year back at the Loch of Lowes visiting the nut feeders.
So seeing a mum with its 2 kits and separately the dog Marten, was a great wildlife moment. : o ) Even happier to get a few images.
Hope you get to see one again at Auchenblae!
