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.

Thanks, Julie!
How beautiful is the light shimmering on the water! He isn't into having his photo taken is he :)
