A Punked Out MuskratA Punked Out Muskrat – Nikon D810, f9, 1/500, ISO 400, -0.3 EV, Nikkor 500mm VR with 1.4x TC, natural light

It isn’t often that I can capture images of Muskrats out of the water so I was delighted to spot this one a few days ago at the Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge. I had to laugh though because it looks like the muskrat had over done some hair styling gel because its fur was sticking up all over and nature plus laughter makes for a great day!

Life is good.
