I tried for at least a 1/2 hr....even used my flash at one point... :D

Take note of the angle...
There was a pretty stiff breeze that evening (see fur) and
I believe the skunk was onto the fact I was aware of what was gonna happen.
Maybe he knew to make that one shot happen cause he never did fire... :lol:
Not the best pics but understand I'm no midget and agility isn't a real strong point.
What an "action shot" that would make eh?....lmao!!

Jaxzwolf: Thanks for putting it straight, you are correct my pic is not a rodent actually not even a rabbit though they are locally referred to as rabbits it is actually a Snowshoe hare (lepus americanus)

another muskrat... seen at least 20 today....

Image

Now this was funny as hell... reminded me of the squirrel in the movie Ice Age... this little guy was trying to get at something he liked below the ice... he was determined as heck but never got it... a couple of times he just sat there wide-eyed... staring.
