Beaver or nutria or musk rat... hard to tell (at least for me) unless they get out of the water or present more than this shot.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

I can never tell a beaver from a nutria until I can see their tail... :)

Nutria? Only because of the very long snout.


you're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I am tripping you.
