"New Residents"



The local pond I go to looking for dragonflies and damselflies has acquired some new residents this year. I first saw the lodge this spring and this morning I saw the inhabitants. I was approaching the pond when I heard the slap of the tail on the water and I knew they were out and about.

This one was checking me out from about 20 ft off shore.

Thanks Diane.

Yes I had seen that video, but they were both swimming around and staying off dry land so I thought Id be OK.

nice picture but I would reiterate the first comment of caution- we have had up here in northern BC two episodes of beavers with rabies attacking and bitting people one of these incidents I was directly involved with actually having to cut the head off to send for rabies cultures - remember they are only overabundant destructive big rodents with flat tails

Wow that's pretty scary. I haven't heard of any rabid beavers around here but it certainly pays to be careful. Thanks for the warning.

It can get dicey in a heart beat. Here in Florida there have been several unprovoked river otter attacks.

Wild animals are unpredictable. It pays to be careful.
