Again at the wetlands, the one creature who seemed quite content was this, which I presume to be a muskrat. You can just see one beady eye. We saw him as we were walking along the path and heard a noise in the water. It's amazing how well camouflaged he was, even against the blue water. If I hadn't been wearing my contact lenses I would not have been able to see him to focus the camera on him. So my perseverance in getting used to them has paid off already. You can see that the ice is still in the middle of the water and it's only at the edges where there is open water. It had frozen very hard this winter and looked like a big open snow covered field. It's lovely to see it begin to look like a wetland habitat again.
I'm not far off being caught up in my project, but will stop for today with apologies for flooding everyone with posting for the past couple of days. Hopefully I will have time to reply to all of the lovely comments that have been made.
