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.

Nice photos. I saw my first one of the season yesterday. They’re awfully cute!
Thanks! They are cute, and so interesting to watch.
And what great photos they are! Takes patience to dokument such animals.
Thanks! It’s always fun and a privilege to see animals that you don’t see very often in the wild.
Some animals make such a quick getaway! Good job to get a couple shots before it darted.
This was the second one that I had seen that day. The first one was too quick for me. 🙂
Great photo … He knows how to displace a reflection!
