Busy Beavers

During one of our picture taking adventures we visited
Pandapas Pond. It is only 10 minutes away and has
some great photo ops! (last blog pic was from PP)
We also found these trees!
It looks like the beavers have really been busy.
Lots more info HERE about beavers.
If you go to the link, they show a pic just like my first one...
seems that a beaver will abandon the tree if they think it is
too large.

Amazing critters they are for sure. It does not take them long to fell a tree

Great photos of the beavers work.
When my mom & step-dad lived in up state NY there were beavers on the lake they lived on. You could hear their tails slapping on the water at times. It sounded really cool.

These are great pictures, we don't have beavers in England, some have been reintroduched in Scotland though.
Thanks for sharing these and for the link, I've made a note to look up on them now.

Great shots Kerri!
I have some relatives with a pond and the beavers are real pests and very hard to get rid of.

Meggie said...

Great shots, Kerri. There is evidence of beaver in the lake where I walk but I've never seen them. I've seen what looks like their lodge and fallen trees. I guess since I walk in the AM, I shouldn't count on seeing them. They sure are hard workers.

I always enjoy seeing the efforts of their labors. They must really be disappointed when they do tackle a large tree and it falls against another without toppling to the ground - we see those every now and then. These are two fine images of the handiwork.

Those little ones seem to have been busy all day round!

RuneE said...

Some shots! We don't have beavers in this part of Norway, so I have never seen the result of their action.

Maybe I should hire some to help me get some wood for the stove next winter?

PS Thank you for a nice comment!

Those are certainly industrious beasties!!

photowannabe said...

That's a lot of work to just abandon it. Their teeth must be made of steel..LOL...Great shots.

Me said...

I am guessing beavers would be extinct if they had not learned that chewing down large trees results in getting crushed by them when they fall. Neat pics Kerri!

Willard said...

Great post and photos Kerri.

We have beavers here, but I have no good still photos of them. I have taken video footage though, but unfortunately none with the new high definition camcorders.

Great shots. Its amazing what beavers can do, i have walking stick I found by the Missouri River that was carved by a beaver who I assume ate the bark. Its natural art.

Laurie said...

They really are amazing critters.

Beavers are really very interesting and amazing animals. That is great photos of their work.

Web-OJ said...

I have never seen a real beaver in my life. But, gosh, they seem to be destructive buggers! Great pics.

USAincognito said...

Very cool!! Amazing how one can always see the aftermath of a beaver but never actually see the beaver responsible...

Max-e said...

Beavers have always fascinated me. I would love to see them in their natural environment. Great pis

Moi said...

wow!!! just the other day I was watching a series on them on and their dam building capabilities on Animal Planet.

we have hit siesta key beach several times , Kerri. It does have some of the whitest and silkiest sand there......:)
And we havent moved to west coast..that has been shelved ...instead we have moved to north east for now. hope that explains the confusion :)

Very interesting post! I've never seen any 'beaver trees' firsthand, but they make great photos as you've shown!
