Dissappering Act

Meet Marty the Muskrat,
Marty comes out in the open, but not real often.
I see him and his pals out and about and try to get photos, but, well
the light is usually low, but this will give you the idea…
 
Marty is making like a mud bank here, see him?

Photos taken with Pentax K10D, 500mm lens plus a 2X extender,
mounted on monopod inside my truck (too windy to be outside).

    Your photos are awesome!  I so enjoy coming to your site and seeing the newest in your line of photography. 
    The talent you have is priceless, so keep up the great work.  Alaska is beautiful and this is as close to seeing it as I will get (maybe!).

    Marty looks like a foul-tempered little old man in the first shot. I can just hear him muttering under his breath as he watches you. lol
    Great pictures! Even the water seems to be moving.

    I like the name! 🙂
    Marty doesn\’t like strangers in his marsh but one of these days he\’ll discover you are quite harmless and will give you a glorious portrait.  Until then, the one where he\’s making like a lump of mud is pretty darn good!
    Pretty good combination on the camera.  You trump my 840 LOL
    Hug hugs from sunny and oh-so-tempting-to-go-outside-kind-of-weather-but-I-really-need-to-do-that-darn-ironing Edmonton! 🙂

    Steve you crack me up he he, I can imagine you waiting it out, with a flick of his tail and he\’s gone .

  13. Nae says:

    I like Marty!  What a cutie.
     
    Right now … we have high wind gusts and lots of rain.  God is watering his garden for the tourists!  I\’m just happy it isn\’t snow again!  Summer will arrive when it is time, and then I will celebrate every moment with delight and appreciation.  Everything for a reason!
     
    God bless you and keep you,
     
    Nae  :o)
