We have two living in our pond/creek area… very secretive creatures… I watch them often.
This morning both of them crept across the valley… usually I only see one at a time do this…
So out I crept, again, been trying to get pictures of these two for months. I’ve sneaked up on a wild turkey before, so how hard could it be…
Well, I found both of them = in hiding places = and in order to get a good photo, I would have had to stand between them and the pond/creek… not a good idea to corner a wild animal. So here’s what I got:
One is hiding under Mom’s newest shed… I only got a vague profile of him, but the other is hiding, you can see fur/face where the boards are missing.
I am determined… one day, I will get a better photo!!!
ARGH! 6-15-10… he was in the backyard – crawling into my garden! Argh! The camera was in the car. Maybe I will upgrade my camera sooner than later, so I can have one in each location… ponder, ponder.
Update: July… one of the beavers was hit on a side road near home… I have only seen one of my pair since… so sad… he’s gettin’ REALLY big!
At the Nature Reserve I got to touch a beaver pelt. It was amazingly soft.
