Muskrat out for a late afternoon swim
I was sitting on a rock waiting for a yellow-crowned night heron to appear - which it never did - when this guy paddled by totally unaware that I was there...until he heard a strange "click."
Swimming back to his hideout
I am linking to Saturday Critters HERE.
Really great shots !
Have a nice weekend !
Those ears are made for super defensive hearing.
To him, "click" mus be equivalent to "bang".
He's right to be careful : YOU are friendly , but some others are not ..Fabulous pictures , as always !
i love love love him... much better than a bird... never seen one but i want to

Muskrat Suzie, Muskrat Sam
Do the jitterbug at a Muskrat Land
And they shimmy, Sam is so skinny
What a fun view of the muskrat, his face reminds me a lot of a beaver. I've never seen one, I guess you don't want one in your garden.
great shots nepali hand made
Great action shots!
Cute shots and sighting of the muskrat.. Thank you for linking up, have a happy weekend!
Those eyes are tale telling..!
He's wondering if you're getting his better side.
What a lovely photo.
I think the animal enjoy to swim...
Those darn I gotta run and hide clicks:) Great shots. Hug B
Your patient waiting paid off for a good shot of something, at least!

What fun, delightful captures, EG!! Such a cute little guy!! Hope you have a great weekend!!
He is SO adorable!
Glad you got some nice shots of him!
I would have mistaken this cute creature for a beaver. Love how he sticks his nose in the air.
What a great shot. I love the color of the water, too.
I think I've mentioned before that I've never seen a muskrat! Beavers, yes, but muskrats, no.
Any 'muskrat love' happening? hehehehehehe
Changes in venue are always fun!...:)JP
What a cutie! Love that nose.
Cute little guy! It's been a while since I've seen one.
What a beautiful surprise. He's so cute.
You managed some good shots of this fella.
How exciting! I've never seen one - at least I don't think I have.
These are fabulous pictures!! I don't think I have ever seen a blogger post a muskrat. He is so cute. And without seeing his tail, he looks a bit like a beaver. You certainly win the best blog of the day for me!
Cute animal and wonderful photos.
I haven't seen a muskrat in years. I'm glad they are still around in your area. Great pics of him.
I am sure glad you got his picture. I think he came out of hiding just for you because he knew the Heron was never going to show. MB
He's keeping an eye on you.
Great shot, that is one critter I haven't seen in person. I love that second photo he is giving you the eye :)
He is so sweet to look at. Fabulous images!
I love these guys. Really great shots!
I've never seen one of these critters! (I know so little about them I didn't realize they were swimmers.) What a treat! Wonderful shots!
Never seen a muskrat before... in here it is called "nurca" and it almost look alike, maybe smaller as size... Thank you for sharing to us! Have a sunny week!
Great captures! Now need to go look up Yellow-capped night heron!
Ahhhh... he is loving life!
He is just awesome!!! Glad you got some pictures before he disappeared!
We have these but they block up our water ways. Those gritters. Naughty, naughty.
Your photos are picture perfect you took.
