Muskrat/Camera Critters

 Muskrat on a mission, Kawartha Lakes, Ontario

Last Wednesday, a muskrat swam close to shore within range of my camera lens long enough for me to take a few photos.

Turning to leave

They are beautiful and very talented because they know how to swim very well and I don't know! :)
