Beatrice

I have to say, I was a little nervous getting out of my vehicle for this one.  I grew knowing that under no circumstance should one try to approach one of these animals.  My husband reassured me that beavers cannot move very quickly and so I would be fine. 

There was no sign of an imminent attack, and so I took my time observing and taking snapshots. He kept his eye on me the entire time and I didn't push my luck. More interesting than the photos were the sounds of his munching. He was very loud! I found it all very adorable, but I was happy to get back to my vehicle again, without incident.

Without further delay, say hello to Beatrice, a fine specimen of Canada's national animal...

I'm sharing my photo on Eileen's critter loving blog HERE today...Thank-you Eileen!

  5. Well hello, Beatrice! I don’t think I know a lot about beavers & didn’t know they could attack people!
    Glad you got the photo safely!
    Happy weekend!

  7. Lovely pic! I think Beatrice is great and I understand about keeping a distance but I didn't realize Beavers could be aggressive to humans. But then you never know how a wild animal will act. Have a nice weekend!

  9. Wonderful shot! Sometimes we have to stretch our fear limit to get a decent pic. Last year in South Dakota there was a huffing, snorting buffalo running toward us on the other side of the road. Hubby stopped and I actual got out to take a pic. Although my brain kept me on the running board of the truck so I could hop back in if he decided to charge. :)

  10. Who's have thought that Beatrice could send you packing? Sounds a good job you had your escape route planned though!

  12. ...well beaver sure are busy little devils! Several years ago a creek running through my property became overrun with beaver and started to flood a large area. A trapper was called in and trapped 9 of these little devils. That was just too much cuteness!

  13. What a great photo - I've never had a chance to see one up close for very long, as they always have run off, maybe one day I will see one.

  14. I had no idea that they could be dangerous, and so I commend you for getting this wonderful image of Beatrice. I had the unexpected surprise of a Wolverine that came out of a ditch while I was walking while on holiday in Colorado once. I took several photos and the whole time I was thinking...is he dangerous, is he about to come after me, I never found out fortunately~

  17. These guys look so docile, but you're right to be wary. I only recently learned that those big teeth can chomp through your leg and people have actually died from their arteries being severed. I only see them from my canoe, but I give them more respect now. Glad you were cautious and were able to get this lovely photo.
