I know this isn’t the best shot, however, I was so excited to see this beaver on the Sweet Marsh in northeast Iowa today!! It was very still out there today and I could hear his “pig-like” noises as he swam along the bank’s edge. How fun!!

    great catch, is that snow around him?

  • LOL . . . no snow around here . . . we’ve been in the mid-70s for the past two weeks!!
    The water was a silvery tone, however, looked blue around the beaver!! :-)

    Great image Lori, wish we had them in the lake here, they are good for a lake ecology

  • Thanks, Byron & Julie!!! We have many just behind our home in the creek, however, I’ve never been fortunate enough to capture one of those!! :-)
