    Hi John, haven't seen a Muskrat posted here for a very long time, so well done in capturing and posting this.

    Good detail and nice control of both the Blacks & Contrast. DoF looks about right and nice to have him/her clutching a blade of grass and eating it, having the head clear of any grass is good too.

    TFS

    Hello John,

    Your subject is incredibly cute and it's wonderful that you managed to capture a behavioural aspect/feeding. BTW I spent the last twenty minutes or so watching videos of the species on youtube

    Well composed and I like the colours. Good choice of DoF. Well processed too, and sharp where it matters. Love those long whiskers!

    Err... I think I see your vehicle reflected in the Muskrat's eye

    I enjoyed this, thank you so much for sharing - very nice work, John!

    Kind regards,
    Gabriela Plesea

    That is one species I have not seen and am glad you got it and posted John, good techs and details. I like the long whiskers and those claws. The feeding behaviour is cool!
