I could do almost any morning as long as I get to work by 10! Thurs & Fri I have off...this one would be a quick drive at least! ;-)

YES! Early morning we go! I just have to find a morning....that's the hard part right now!

ChristyHolland 8 years ago

Definitely!! It's along the greenbelt, and I'd go anytime!! I've never been in the early AM...???

I did see your other spotting. I reckon it must have been someone's pet or 4H animal that escaped! Beautiful regardless! ....and you must take me to this special lake! Gotta catch me a beaver! (no jokes!)

This was at Prospect Park on 44th in Wheat Ridge...I was sitting watching the ducks and it was really getting dark, and the duck silhouettes and reflections were really neat, and all of a sudden this big flat guy comes swimming towards the shore!! I want to go look sometime too! I took a lot of pics but my camera had a hard time focusing...even had it on ISO 4000...very hard...did you see the other spotting I entered??? THAT was a shocker too!!! Same lake... ;-)

Where was this?!? Lakewood??? What is a beaver doing in Lakewood?! I've been itching to photograph a beaver (no jokes please!) forever!!! Nice shots!
