This was an extraordinary encounter. I noticed a family of nutria sitting in a large cypress stump on the edge of Cypress Flats, and I was able to actually dock The POS to the stump without the nutria leaving. I was close enough to photograph this baby with fill flash. If you look closely, you'll see one of the over-sized, webbed back feet on the youngster.The baby is leaning against Mom's side, and the tip of another adult's tail can be seen in the lower right corner of the photo.
