Last weekend, while back at my pond fishing, I watched two very busy muskrats. At first, I only saw one, which continued to swim back and forth. Then, another one joined it, and they swam back and forth together. Is anyone else thinking "Muskrat Love"? So, they both got to the bank near me, and one of the muskrats (the one I decided was Susie, the female - you'll see why), started yipping (kinda like a puppy yip). She just kept it up, and wherever the other muskrat (Sam) would swim, Susie would follow, yipping at him the whole.dang.time (Do you see why I decided that one was the female? hehe). All of a sudden, like they had just been hit with electronic muscle stimulation, they got into a little wrestling match (honest, that's what happened - this is a G rated blog, y'all), and the one I decided was Sam took off across the pond and left his yipping Susie at the other end. Geesh - love em and leave em, I guess!

(For those of you who don't know... in the song "Muskrat Love", it's Muskrat Susie and Muskrat Sam)

Fabulous, Misty, seeing muskrats AND muskrat love. Doesn't happen very often in the camera critter biz, I bet.
I should take up fishing again. Maybe I'd see something exciting.

The muskrat pix are fabulous! What a great day you had. And thank you for sharing. (But I'm not sure I'm thanking you for hearing the Capt and Tennile singing in my head! ;>)))

How cute. I didn't know what muskrats looked like, although I know the song. It's going to echo inside my head all day now :)
