While observing and photographing the Western Grebes in the Farmington Bay I noticed an unknown animal that I had never encountered before.
From time to time this animal swam along the shore and disappeared in the water, it was bringing to his home some building material.
Later, I learned that I met a Muskrat that was working tirelessly on its home in the swamp.
Whatever the Muskrat found was very helpful and I am sure it was pleased with his find.
The Muskrat used its sharp front long teeth to cut this building material from plant.
Muskrats lead an aquatic life style spending most of their time swimming and diving.
Life goes on.
