Pine martens: These beautiful and charismatic little mustelids were photographed on a Pine marten photography workshop in Scotland. Please contact me if you are interested in joining me for a workshop with these wild and enchanting creatures.
Flash photography perhaps surprisingly does not in any way affect these nocturnal animals.
