Sunny Side Up: A Pine Marten at Breakfast

We have quite a few camera-shy wild creatures in the Highlands. When last did you pap a ptarmigan or snap a wild cat? The pine marten is another one: cute creature but determined not to get its face in the papers. Fortunately Steve Carter is a brilliant photographer who just happens to live nearby. In fact his most recent photographs feature a great photo of the Torridon from the other side of the loch. Steve recently set up a video camera and generous buffet table in the hope of filming a pine marten. The results are staggering as you will see here: a Scottish pine marten at breakfast.
