Super capture - bet that tree did not last long.
posted March 7th, 2015  
Oh, My! Lots around here, I've never caught one in action! Awesome!
posted March 7th, 2015  
Had to do a double take when I saw who was posting this, not your normal shot. :-))

That being said, this is an awesome nature shot! How neat to catch him in action cutting down a tree! I'm going to have to Fav this!

Very cool...nice beaver

Fav! What an amazing thing to see!

You wouldn't want to be that tree though would you....
posted March 7th, 2015  
They are usually so nervous of people aren't they! Super to see one in action - I wonder if they get splinters in their teeth!

@graemestevens this is Canada... we get that a lot ;p
posted March 7th, 2015  
Don't ever think I have seen one of these guys, either! In cartoons, maybe.... How long does it take them to bring a tree down? And, then, what? What a great capture! And, yes, it's quite a departure for you!
posted March 7th, 2015  
Wow what a fantastic capture!! To see a beaver and actually catch him in action - brilliant!! Huge Fav!
posted March 7th, 2015  
Wow, awesome find and capture. It's about to fall.
posted March 7th, 2015  
Wow! What a photo opportunity! I'm thrilled if I see a beaver dam. I'd be shaking with excitement over spotting one in action like this. Great job capturing the hard-work rodent.
posted March 7th, 2015  
Incredible, never seen a Beaver in real life, especially eating a tree. I hope you didn't plant it :)

posted March 7th, 2015  
Fav. That is so cool. We have one over at Beckley Park but I have never seen him. Just the chopped down trees.
posted March 7th, 2015  
OMG! That's an awesome catch! I love the eyes - makes me think he's been caught doing something he shouldn't. ;)

@sueb47 hi Sue... i was using a 16-55... this was taken at about 45mm i think... it's cropped in a bit, but not hugely... i was able to get quite close to him... maybe 6 -10 feet away?

This is an amazing shot. Where I live, in Oregon (the Beaver state), everything is named Beaver this and beaver that. I have never seen one, and nobody I know has ever seen one either as they are threatened by habitat loss. Fantastic shot!

Wow, caught him in the act. Great shot!
