My first sighting of one of the 2 baby muscrat at our local marsh. The other quickly went back to their den but this one was very bold.

Thank you Jeff Aelick and Sticks. The young muscrat swam across the pond very close to me and then pulled off a piece of reed to nibble on. It was obvious that the rock that I was standing on was its regular dining spot, as it swam towards me. With my zoom lens on, I had to retreat to be able to keep taking photos of it, as the young muscrat swam righ up to me and them climbed up on the low, flat rock that I had vacated to enjoy its meal . Quite an amazing experience.
