Cute, but pretty destructive by all accounts, good capture in their own environment, they don't even seem aware your there.

Nice catch Tim, I have tried several times, but they always go under water. Looks to be a bit cold there still.

pretty destructive by all accounts,
Beavers are amazing hydrological engineers and if managed properly can renew lost or damaged wetlands. The Nature of Things (CBC television series) recently aired (March 28th) a show (Beaver Whisperers) that explains how the environment can benefit from the ingenuity and hard work demonstrated by beavers:The Beaver Whisperer LIVE - The Nature of Things

Nice captures of hard to capture critters. Have not been able to capture any of our local beavers but they are causing flooding in some neighborhoods.

Great shot, indeed!! I've never seen them in the wild. But, then, I don't get out much these days.

Thanks for looking. They were a long ways away thanks to using the 500mm lens.
