Here are a couple pictures of a black-footed ferret on the CMR. We were out as a class a few weeks ago to help with trapping for one night. The black-footed ferret is the rarest mammal in North America and the population we were helping to survey only contained fifteen individuals. The purpose for trapping was to reapply a black dye to the ferret's neck that signifies it has been vaccinated and accounted for.
These pictures were not taken manually. I didn't want to risk using a wrong setting for pictures of a mammal that I may never see again. Therefore I simply used the automatic setting. I also have little experience with trying to snap pictures at night with headlamps as a lighting source. So enjoy-
