Such an misunderstood mammal,so important to the waterways and the wildlife they support,great picture John Warner.
Silently this click tells a story even without John's caption The beaver at first glance from his posture appears cold. He is not of course. He is a beaver. It is because of the marvelous capture of his frigid surroundings which give that feeling. Great click.
This little critter even seems to have a shivering cold expression on his profile similar to what many Northerners might have this winter. Great shot and cool blue temperature color!
The beaver's reflection in the ice chilled water and the lovely blanket of snow and mist that seems to me moving around, creates such magic... Thanks John
Even in the dead of winter they are always working and it is a wonderful picture of a animal so many of us know so little about!
