Another Boring Beaver

May 11, 2017  •  12 Comments

From a distance it could have been a muskrat.

 

But as I ran up on it as quietly as possible, I could see it was a beaver.

 

He was leaving colorful patterns in his wake.

 

As I got closer, the patterns in the water intensified.

 

Finally caught up to the beaver and he was making waves.

 

He slowed down and eyed me intensely.

 

I caught him in mid slap before he dove under a tree hanging over the water.

 

He waited in the water at the edge of the tree.

 

He started out from under the tree, saw me and did a slap-n-dive just as I released the shutter. You can see his face and paw under the water.
