[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This fellow was swiming across the river when I was taking pictures of birds. I was hoping it was a water vole but at closer inspection no such luck. You can see his tale floating in the water.

+1 sharpness and +3 saturation in DPP. Cropped and resized

Hi Staale
While this is maybe not the most spectacular photo on TN it sure is unique. I could not find any other photo on TN showing this behaviour and for that reason it is definitively worth the credit. You have spotted it well and captured it in a fine record shot.
Good work and TFS.
