"A LITTLE SNOW NEVER STOPPED A CANADIAN"

Beaver (North American) - 11 Photos

 

 

Canadians pride themselves on never letting a little snow get in the way of working, driving to the local shops or even enjoying the great outdoors.

 

And what symbol could be more Canadian than the North American beaver and what could even be more Canadian than a beaver working away in the snow. 

 

But before a beaver can hit the woods, he/she must make the trip from its lodge. The beaver could always go overland but that can not only be slow going, considering the drag from behind i.e. one beaver tail and dangerous or it could take the shortest path between two points. That would entail some underwater swimming in a pond covered by ice to a small opening where the beaver can surface & climb out into a frozen landscape (Photo #1 through Photo #3)

 

And sometimes an older beaver can be accompanied by a younger sibling, perhaps testing the waters and its swimming under ice technique or maybe for morale support (Photo #4).  

 

Then it's a short jaunt over to the local shop; sorry - woods, to choose the appropriate edibles to re-stock the beaver's pantry (Photo #5 through Photo #7).  Some harvesting is, of course, required (Photo #8 through Photo #10) and then the travelling is done in reverse but this time with the goods literally in tow (Photo #11).

What a fantastic series of photos!
Great looking beavers, and caught red-handed cutting down a tree :)
