Grand River Beaver - Painesville, Ohio

    I came across this handsome animal (Castor canadensis) on a recent fishing excursion. Unfortunately, I could not get a better shot of the tail, which is very broad and flat.

      What a nice shot! A handsome animal, indeed, in an atypical pose. I usually see them pictured in water, or out of water (dry).
      I love this pic, it gave me the chance to discover new details about the beaver, such as its cute small ears! Thanks for sharing it...

      Thanks Cow Girl. This one's no match for your ferocious marmot... LoLoL!

      Hi charmante. Thank You! I am glad that I could bring this one to you! After I saw Cow Girl's wicked groundhog, I couldn't resist...

      This is the closest I ever got to one of these in the wild. I had never seen one push its haunches up like that before. So we both learned something about of this trusting animal :-)

      First time seeing Beaver. Is there any dam this beauver made around there ? : D

      Good question Araleya! But, the answer is no... no beaver dam. It does have a very nice lodge, built out of sticks in some deep, slow-moving water in this river. I like the hair slicked-back! :·3

      Go Beavers! That's a really good shot of a beaver. I went to Riverside and fish all the time on the Grand. Those things scare the crap out of you when you don't expect them to slam their tails onto the surface of the river.

      Thank You! This one is almost certainly guilty of giving you a fright at least once. I took this photo very close to the route 20 bridge, a favorite steelhead and smallmouth bass site for many anglers like us.
