Missy Muskrat

Friends, the morning this was taken, the ice had covered the flowage and this little muskrat was perched on top, munching away on some vegetation that was protruding from the ice.  I like the light of the evening sun.  These rodents make houses of the reeds and sedges that also stick up out of the ice.  They say that the height of these houses predicts the snow fall depths this winter.  til Tomorrow MJ
