A Muskrat Gathers Grass

More shots from the archives - May 2009. As I took this trip down memory lane, I recalled My First and Only (so far) Muskrat Encounter
This is the same image as the top one - just cropped a little closer so you can see the grasses in his mouth. I assume he was taking these for food for his little ones OR for building a nest.
I posted about this muskrat earlier on my blog - HERE he is coming up out of the water prior to gathering the grass - You can even see the duckweed on his face :)
Visit Camera Critters - HERE - to see some Cool Critter shots.

I know what you mean... sometimes we just stumble upon critters and photo ops that end up with a lot of wow factor... love your shots, you were quite close.. wouldn't you love to be able to run your fingers through that fur coat?

Certainly one animal none of us having an opportunity to photograph very often. I don't think I've ever even seen one!

Country Girl said...

It's Muskrat Love! Oh, but I see someone else has beat me to that.

Love all of these, my friend. I never get to see this sort of thing IRL, so this is a treat.

I like these shots very much! These guys make me think of skinny-tailed beavers. Hard and shrewd workers, they are lovely.
