A few years ago I used to see a Muskrat often swimming in the river.  I knew the location of its home and knew where and when to watch for it.  However I hadn't seen one for years until last Saturday when I saw one swimming in a pond where I had gone to look for Snapping Turtles. I was pleased and surprised to see it swimming in the water. I didn't get too  many pictures of it as it disappeared as soon as it it became aware of me and my interest in it swimming along.  A Muskrat is a semi-aquatic

rodent, It is sometimes referred to as a rat, although it is not a member of that particular family.
Hope everyone is having a nice day.
