Closeup of beaver
I think this may be a young beaver as it let me get quite close to take these photos. I didn't have my telephoto with me. OOPS! Well, I was lucky that the beaver was more interested in chomping down twigs than in worrying about that crazy lady with one BIG, clicking eye looking at it.
Right outside the entrance to it's lodge
I did eventually sneak in too close and the beaver scurried down the hole.
A second beaver?
A few minutes later (I was still there but further away taking photos of the tree it had been peeling bark off) I noticed movement out of the corner of my eye. This beaver was not nearly so tolerant and did not hang around long. Notice its tail. I think this beaver has been in a war.
