First Sighting of 2009

R.E.S.S.I.E. Team,

I snapped this photo on Jan. 2nd about 4 p.m. in the evening. I was driving across the spillway leaving Rankin, headed toward Ridgeland. I had just left my brothers house and was lucky enough to have my digital camera sitting on the front seat out of its case. I just saw this thing in the distance and then I saw that it was moving. The "creature" began to submerge itself as I snapped the photos. This was the best of the bunch. Hope this is helpful.

Hey we really appreciate you sharing your photo. This is classic Ressie behavior. Late afternoon foraging. That day was a bit on the warm side. The creature had probably left its underwater cavern to hunt. I wouldn't have expected a sighting of this quality this early in the year. Hopefully this means we will have a successful capture in 2009 (fingers crossed). All of the new traps are in place and ready for the spring rut.

  1. I'm married to a Ressie and some some of the things he does are sights!


Stay in touch. But please keep it clean for the kids.
