Beaver

Beaver swimming towards me

This guy/gal seemed fearless until all of a sudden it realized I was there. It slapped it's tail making a loud noise and big splash, then dove under to get away.

Another beaver just out of the water

I've always thought beavers were nocturnal but these guys were out in broad daylight.

I am linking to Saturday Critters HERE.

I like the second photo. You were right at eye level with her. I say it's female. I have a 50% chance of being right. ;)

What great photos! I haven't seen a beaver in the wild since, well, the beginning of time! They are dam cute, though!

Ah, love those beavers and busy ones they are indeed!! Terrific captures as always!! Such fun to see them "up close and personal"!! Hope your weekend is off to a great start! Enjoy!!

William Kendall said...

They're busy at many hours of the day. I've found the best chance to get sight of them is around sunset.

José Mendonça said...

What fantastic captures! Great job. I've seen beaver's dams in Tierra del Fuego, Argentina, but wasn't lucky to spot not even one cute little creature.

RedPat said...

Hard working Canadian symbols - working day and night! ;-)) Great shots, EG!

I have always seen a few along of the day, but see them more late of the evening.

Great pics, BTW.

Wonderful shots! I do not believe they are nocturnal! I have several videos of them in daytime.

A Quiet Corner said...

I can never seem to get one above water!!! They are so fast...:)JP

Jenny said...

Up close and personal! So cool when there's eye contact with wild animals. Beavers are impressive animals in their brown rodent-y way.

Gemma Wiseman said...

Both shots are glorious captures of the beaver. The first shot in particular shows a wonderful view of the swimming beaver.

Felicia said...
