As the icy streams and lakes melted over the weekend, the ducks weren't the only spring creatures popping up in Houghton Lake. Even the fuzzy creatures snuck out of their dens to greet the warm sun.
Driving along the open water ditches just west of Houghton Lake, I came across this little Muskrat having himself a snack. Being he let me park right next to him to take his photo, I'm thinking he was either too hungry or too cold to move making his photo-op a great success!
Technically, this guy is from the 'rat' family, but what do you think? 'Muskrat Love,' or would this fuzzy little critter have you jumping on top of a kitchen chair screaming?
Thanks for stopping by! Look for more to come.
