North American beaver

Castor canadensis


Strangely enough, these beavers were out in the middle of the day. I was wondering why they were circling in front of me until one thwacked its tail against the water to splash me. Then I realized I was standing in front of the drainage pipe they were attempting to dam. Oops!
