When little furry things cross my path, they are usually little squirrels. Well, not this time. This giant, ugly rat popped out of the woods in front of me at Kenny's Pond. It was carrying something, a baby rat!
I wasn't even sure what it was carrying when I was on the spot, because this creature headed right for me. I have a series of photos that got blurrier as it got closer.
It got closer and closer, and I was backing up and trying to shoot at the same time, until it finally got too close. I put the camera down and backed up quickly. Finally, it darted into the woods. I guess it was protecting its baby, but trust me, I didn't want it.
