You really get out there and find wide variety of critters. You also accurately identify things.

Thanks for sharing your amazing Spring in Paradise! Every picture is great -- I feel as if I've just been there (by magic carpet?) -- it was a great tour.

'Busy as a muskrat' doesn't quite have the alliterative ring, but it looks as if they are just as industrious.!
