Roy Mangersnes - Pine Marten


As a behavioural biologist I always try to ad behaviour in my photography. In 2009 I was working with Pine Martens in several locations, and was able to observe the behaviour of this elusive creature of the forest. I was especially pleased to document interesting behaviour not previously seen in the wild, like this young male scent marking his territory.

Location: Norway

    Excellent work, love the environment. I've met few in the fields, but when they enter the forest, they are gone in 60 seconds.
