Long-tailed Weasels

These two popped out of the vegetation along the road to the lighthouse with the larger one holding the smaller one's hindneck in its mouth. At first I thought they were an adult and a juvenile, but I think they were more likely an adult male and an adult female. They looked around for several seconds and then the larger one pulled the smaller one into the bush lupines.
