Muskrat, Orb Cat, and more

Here's a muskrat in Lake Siri:

I think this is a Slaty Skimmer (note the dark eyes and face):

A male Fishing Spider, Dolomedes tenebrosus (I have a picture of a large female here):

Capacapon Mountain Orb Cat:

Mouse over pics for captions, and click them for larger versions.

The muskrat shot is really cool - I love the colours and the mix of the water and his back and the (?leaf)...

I would be very pleased with myself if I had taken that shot

That was a water plant with roots it was carrying. Perhaps to eat, or m else to build a nest with?

Caught in the act! Superb shots and sweet kitty! I have a dogy that can match those eyes!

We have muskrats on the job- we had a bunch of beavers about six years ago, they were relocated because they were wreaking havoc on the trees.
