"BLUE LAGOON"

Beaver (North American) - 5 Photos

 

Two beavers eventually swam out from the lodge, late in the evening. 

 

From their size & activities, I think they may have been the two younger members of the family of six seen last year. At this point, I don't know if there are any new kits born over the course of this past Winter.

 

They ventured out looking for some new fresh vegetation, which allowed for a few close-ups. It's only recently that I've noticed that beavers actually have fur on their large noses. Totally makes sense as it's all about maintaining warmth, particularly when swimming in cold water. 

 

Photo #5 is the young beaver, who repeatedly swam back & forth across the beaver pond, towing a branch. There didn't seem to be any particular destination or eating involved. Perhaps he/she was just practicing or doing the beaver equivalent of "bench pressing" to build up endurance for carrying/swimming future building material back to the lodge. :)
