Muskrat

This muskrat was intently feeding upon vegetation on the edge of a flooded farm field near the Mississippi River.  His concentration was so focused upon his task that I was able to take several photos before he realized I was there.  Finally he looked up, spotted me, dove underwater and quickly swam away.

“Courage consists not in blindly overlooking danger, but in seeing it, and conquering it.”  ~Jean Paul
