BEAVERS

Always playful, incredibly hardworking, the beavers are amazing to watch.
Being nocturnal, they begin coming out around 6:30-7:00 in the evening. 
Gradually their "day" starts and they begin to work or play.





























Always, when in the pond, the male beaver kept a keen eye on me.  Following are several images of the male beaver
staring me down.  After a while, we accepted each other.  But he still gives me that "special stare." (*See Video)

































 

BEAVERS ON LAND

After spending 3 hrs every evening for 2 months watching and photographing the two beavers at this small beaver pond
I still do not yet fully understand their habits.  I have a glimpse into their lives, their coming and going.  I know that finding them together
on land is a rare thing, and I have observed they are extremely wary and security minded.  As they are nocturnal, almost all the dam work
is done during the wee hours of night, and by early morning they are gone.  The female is extremely cautious.  The male eats and eats and eats.

After working on the dam or enjoying a pond-side meal, they often carry food home to their young.











BEAVERS PLAYING WITH A REED

(Video Available)


This sequence of two beavers playing with a reed (eight images) was extremely rare to witness and photograph.
The male and female headed out from the pond's edge and began to play with a pristine reed.

It was like watching a martial arts demonstration.

Watching the effect that the beavers had on the water in the pond was amazing. 
The wave ripples caused unusual formations in the reflections in the pond.
