Something that I Didn’t Expect to See in This Weather

I had been to the park shooting images of the hoarfrost -covered trees in the morning and returned in the late afternoon when the sun was quite low. I walked onto a pedestrian bridge  that crosses the river, happened to look down and there was a massive beaver. I fired off these shots quickly  as I am sure he sensed my presence and disappeared into the chilly waters. All photos were taken at 300mm 1/30 sec @ f/5.6 ISO 800

    • He was pretty large, maybe carrying a lot of fat.i guess they are not just sleeping underground in their lodges.

  3. Not much blur for 1/30 sec. Fun you caught him on shore. They usually are not so likely to be seen so easily.

    • once he heard me or saw me he waddled over to the water.He was just sitting there as in the first shot.

  4. Nature is the best painting. We can’t touch it, however, we appreciate our cameras so as to relive and share the beauty we behold.
    Very nice,
