Another Beaver shot

I checked my camera trap today in pouring down rain and found 4 more beaver photos taken on 10-28-08 between 11:15 and 11:30 PM. These photos show more of the beaver since I removed some vegetation that had obscured part of the big fellow last time. No activitiy for the last 8 days.
It's amazing how excited I get each time I check my camera trap with the anticipation of catching a new and different veiw of a beaver. Old men are really just kids at heart!

Thanks to Chriss I found your blog and the beaver photos. Great pictures of an animal I have enjoyed watching for years.

That beaver might not finish falling the tree and just leave it to the wind and weather to finish the job. At that age it needs to chew a lot to control the rapid growth of the front teeth. They also don't need that much food on the ground at once so the tree still lives for another day.

Cliff I appreciate your input on beavers and it is beginning to look like this one is taking his/her sweet time on this tree. There is also evidence that it is eating other leafy vegetation nearby,
