Voyage of Discovery

The only real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes. ~Marcel Proust
This image is from a few years back. When I first saw this little guy I thought he was a beaver but I do believe he is a muskrat. The tail wasn't quite right for a beaver. It was a quite a magical moment for me!

He is adorable! A magical moment indeed. My heart still pounds with excitement when I hear the honking of geese, or when I'm sitting in the woods and a deer casually walks up beside me unaware that I am there...It never gets boring!

It is very cute and I think you are right about the muskrat. Will have to try to remember to show it to my brother and see what he says.

They do favor beavers! I just googled. We had an up close and personal beaver experience, and the appearance is very, very similar. But you're right: the tail would be the giveaway that would make him a muskrat.

It's a GREAT picture! I love it!

How very charming the little critter is. I can't believe you got so close. I was amazed once, in suburbia, really, to see a doe right in someone's yard as I neared the freeway entrance. I was so afraid she was going to leap into traffic.
