This little chap, namely a stoat (Mustela erminea), also known as the ermine or short-tailed weasel, stopped only for a brief moment to check out the surroundings and to allocate its next food source. It can be easily distinguished from other members of the weasel family by its larger size and longer tail with a prominent black tip.

On a different note, there is only a little over ONE day left to take advantage of my 25% discounts on Yosemite images: http://davidrichterphotography.com/blog/plus-one-collection-print-sale/ to celebrate the Plus One Collection - a book project to help raise money for the charity organization "Kiva" on Google+.
