Adolescent Nutria

Bumped up the ISO to 800 and still did not get shorter exposure than 1/15 sec so that I had to wait for a moment with absolutely no movement. Taking this shot required to lie in mud and goose droppings; I guess everybody has his own way to spend his leisure time. This nutria measures about 15 cm without tail right now and will grow up to 40-60 cm. (Wildlife - as in: Not domesticated, not captive, not attracted with food, not manipulated otherwise.)
