While quite common, Beavers are a form of wildlife not often seen. They prefer to stay out of sight and are shy around people. On this morning last week though, three of them were quite busy along the South Platte River southwest of Denver, Colorado. They continually made trips from their lodges to the sides of the river where they grabbed sticks and hauled them back home. It was well shaded and I didn’t have quite enough lens to get good close-ups but it was fun to see them, something I have only done a few times.
Not a creature I have gotten many images of but this pair was very cooperative on the South Platte River. They were hard at work gathering material to add to their lodge, climbing the banks and grabbing material then hopping back in the water and carefully placing it at their home. Lighting was dim in the canyon but it was fun to watch them hard at work.
