"A BEAVER'S LIFE ISN'T ALL WORK"

Beaver (North American) - 4 Photos

 

All work and no play makes the beaver a dull mammal - to paraphrase that well known proverb.

 

I was fortunate to catch this beaver coming out of the lodge (two had already headed further down into the pond) and swimming back to the shoreline, before twilight. 

 

His/her first intention, I think, was to follow its family members further down but changed its mind and swam back to sample the greenery on the nearby shore. Thank you, beaver!:) Perhaps, a quick snack before the serious beaver business began.

 

And that is all he/she did for approximately 15 minutes and then swam off, to explore the far reaches of the water.

It’s great to see these out-of-water shots! Too often all we see is the beaver swimming away. Your patience has enriched us all. Thanks!
