On Monday while out exploring we came across two beavers and their damn.
They were very willing subjects.
I have to admit that I don’t know a whole lot about beavers. I know now that they make a strange little chirp when communicating. I’m not sure if that chirp was for me or if they were communicating to each other.
This pair was more than willing to give me plenty of photo opportunities, getting in and out of the water, grooming and eating.
They jumped in and out of the water, dived around, criss crossed from shore to shore. They get around very well and had all sorts of paths and trails they used under the water and on the ground.
When I got home and looked at the pictures I discovered that they have the creepiest feet ever. I do not particularly enjoy any sort of feet and so these were a little disturbing to me.
Today I found out that Sunday, April 7th was National Beaver Day.
I suppose one day late is better than never.
