Muskrats - Difficult to catch.

I don't know about any where else but around here these critters are very difficult to capture with a camera. They can detect movement unlike any other animal around here. They even dive under water if a bird flies by. I finally figured out where his house was and spent numerous hours over about 3 days to catch him coming and going to his house. It seems like just before a storm they move around more than during nice weather.

Here he is

Up close



It is amazing how they use their tail as a rudder to turn

Hi Rocky, 10 feet now that is amazing. Around here I don't think that will happen. Thanks for looking and commenting.
