    LOVE LOVE LOVE! Thank you, Steve πŸ˜€ These are absolutely wonderful – the reflection on the first shot is perfect and in the second shot I’m guessing that’s a mummy beaver and either a miss beaver or a master beaver by her side. Too cute for words.

    • I am quite chuffed with your pleasure, Lottie. When you asked for some I remembered these and thought they would do the trick. πŸ˜€
      I am not sure about either the family status or gender unfortunately.

  8. These are excellent pics with the first one really eye catching. The reflection in the pond makes this one a stand out. The beaver are brown beauties. This would make a nice painting as well..

    • Thank you, Yvonne. I think these may have been a young couple celebrating their nuptials and setting up housekeeping in the river that feeds the Quabbin and Boston’s water supply. The one solo seemed a bit more tolerant of my presence than the other. Not sure if that indicates gender or possibly youth versus maturity. Either way, it was a very happy encounter for me.

  9. For me it’s the reflection of the beaver that makes the first picture. Say two for the price of one if you wish, and that could apply as well (but differently) to the second picture. By coincidence, only yesterday someone asked me about beavers in Austin and I said that I’d seen them in east Texas but didn’t think there are any here.

    Well I’ll be d_ _ _ _ d. Love those beavers. Ours have been returning in numbers too. It’s so good to see them swimming along or eating shoots by the water’s edge.
    Fabulous photographs Steve.

    • Darned? πŸ™‚ I always am glad to come upon a developing beaver construction site too, Rod. They can cause trouble near settled areas, but history tells us they had been here first…until someone got the great idea to turn them into garments for the old world.
      Thanks, Rod.

    It’s amazing to me how much they resemble our nutria. No big flat tail on the nutria, of course, but otherwise? I guess if you’ve seen one rodent, you can pretty much identify the others. It occurs to me that my first two pets, a squirrel and a prairie dog, were rodents. Cute is in the eye of the beholder, I suppose.

    That first photo’s wonderful. He looks like he’s chewing on a toothpick.

  13. I remember this post, but it’s certainly with a repeat visit. That reflection still does the trick for me.
