Perfect timing and shot :)
March 7th, 2015  
Wow! Neither have I! Very cool!
March 7th, 2015  
So cool.
March 7th, 2015  
Super capture - bet that tree did not last long.
March 7th, 2015  
Oh, My! Lots around here, I've never caught one in action! Awesome!
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!
March 7th, 2015  
Very cool...nice beaver
March 7th, 2015  
Fav! What an amazing thing to see!
March 7th, 2015  
You wouldn't want to be that tree though would you....
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!
March 7th, 2015  
@graemestevens this is Canada... we get that a lot ;p
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!
March 7th, 2015  
Wow what a fantastic capture!! To see a beaver and actually catch him in action - brilliant!! Huge Fav!
March 7th, 2015  
Wow, awesome find and capture. It's about to fall.
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.
March 7th, 2015  
Incredible, never seen a Beaver in real life, especially eating a tree. I hope you didn't plant it :)
March 7th, 2015  
terrific capture.
March 7th, 2015  
that would be intense having to chew through that!
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.
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. ;)
March 7th, 2015  
Superb timing- he looks way cool than Justin B....:)

Special, not just the shot but the experience. He almost is looking at you like "Opps, I forgot to pay attention."
March 8th, 2015  
@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?
March 8th, 2015

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!
March 8th, 2015  
Wow, caught him in the act. Great shot!
