Beaver (Three Photographs)

To view more of my photography please click on

The thing about beavers is their timing early or late in the day when the light is not always good enough. Secondly, they tend to be mostly under water and their iconic tails are barely visible. Thirdly, detail in their fur can be hard to get given how wet it is. Fourthly, when they stop to eat or work they close their eyes for extended periods. For a long time I could not figure out what the floating pineapples I saw were until I saw this beaver eating and the results.

  1. I imagine it is a challenge to get conditions right to capture these elusive and private animals. I had to look up what kind of root it was – it is a waterlily!

    • Wow. Thanks. It never occurred to me it could be a plant. Once a year we get perfect light in the afternoon.
