Another highlight of my morning visit to the wetlands was the opportunity to photograph the muskrats.
Muskrats are most active in dim light and during the hours of darkness making photographing them problematic however on this morning they were very active late in the morning.
After watching the muskrats swim about at the other end of the remaining pool I decided to reposition during one of their visits to their den. The move paid off when shortly after getting reset this muskrat surfaced near my position.
The little critter wasn’t overly alarmed by the sound of the cameras shutter but did soon submerge in the muddy water.
