Wild animals are a great challenge to photograph. Always unpredictable with rich payoffs.

Animals watching you 5

Postby Didereaux » Sat May 20, 2017 12:40 pm

Nutria with a Cheerios habit. Ain't those bright orange teeth somethin'? ;) Fairly tame creatures if you aren't real jerky or threatening. Quite a pest doen here as they burrow into levees causing them to leak, and then fail. Brought here like Chinchillas to make you a millionaire with there fur. Yep, that worked out well! LOL Now Louisianna is trying to convince people they are better than mudbugs or Blackened Redfish to eat. Nothing like a big rat deep fried on a stick! Cajun Heaven, surely!

There are no banal subjects in photography, but an infinite number of banal ways to illustrate them.

I've never come across one in the wild, but they look enormous! What an amazing shot! S-

Great image. Had no idea they were this tolerant of nearby humans. Figured them to be timid as a beaver...live n' learn
