Beavers at the Buffet (Three Photographs)

Beaver BuffetTo view more of my photography please click on www.rakmilphotography.com

Unfortunately this year, we didn’t get out often enough to see the beavers get their lodges ready for the deep freeze. These are among the few shots I got. Nice big beavers hunkering down at their favorite buffet.

  1. WOW! Love the beavers. I have seen them in the wild only two times but have never been close enough for a photo.

    • There is a point in November where they are less nocturnal. Breaking the ice to search for food and material for the lodge. That has been our window of opportunity.

  2. Lovely photos! In 1988 bevers were reintroduced in The Netherlands, after disappearing for a while. But I’ve never seen them (should go on a trip to try to photograph them too!).

    Thank you for sharing these wonderful photographs!

    Kind regards, Tieme

    • Good luck. They are mostly nocturnal. They extend their hours in preparation for winter.

  3. Superb shots, Victor. The beavers at my local marsh have relocated to a more inaccessible location, so I have not seen them at all this past year, though there are signs they were really busy in the autumn. It’s wonderful you were able to capture them in pretty decent light–they seem to be most active during times when the light is so limited that photos are a real challenge.

  5. Love your Beaver shots! At our old house there was a HUGE den of beavers. Unfortunately they were chewing down all the trees and made a huge mess of a creek. I did love see them swimming and chewing though. 🙂

    • Thanks. Beavers are generally a boon to the environment creating watersheds in the wild, that does not work so well in man made environments.

    • Thanks. National symbols of Canada for their industry, as in working like a beaver.

  8. Beavers have exploded in our area since they banned snare traps. I love to watch them, but they are very shy. You’re fortunate to have had both the light and quiet stealth to take these – they are wonderful.

    • Thanks. The authorities here sometimes relocate beavers. We have lots of room in Canada 🙂
