In the evening I spent some time at our Big Pond. The place was alive with the chorus of toads singing. The waters seemed to boil with their activity.
This is another shot of the same beaver. The photo was taken with my Nikon D40, using a 50mm lens, attached to a telescope.
Later I watched the two dark beavers feeding. One spent a little time grooming itself, but by that time the fading light made it not worthwhile trying to get a digiphoto of the creature.
