12-APR-2004 Ron Lutz II


Nixon, PA

This is a semi aquatic rodent know as a Muskrat, Ondatra zibethicus. I see these quite often and even managed to shoot one swimming under the ice this past winter. Though I’ve seen these little furry little guys all over the place, including swimming downtown Pittsburgh by the “Point,” (that’s where our three main rivers meet) I rarely get good shots of them.

Nice! We have one living in the little pond behind our house... I'm hoping to get a shot of him one day too. He's very shy though, dissappears almost as soon as you see him.

Great shot - your framing is very fine, and the same goes for lighting and contrast here . I really like looking at this.
