Who wouldn't want to live here? I think those beavers are pretty smart!
After Herb mowed the lawn and I cleaned the house, we had Mexican take-out on the front porch. And before we left, we snuck quietly down to the pond to see if we could spot a beaver. Sure enough! In the picture at left, you can see a stripe of white wake reflected in the setting sun back near those reeds Hero was checking out earlier. You can't see on this picture, but there's a little beaver head at the front of the wake! That's the only reason we could see him gliding so silently through the water without even a splash or ripple. You can see the line of wake near the bank in the right-hand picture, too. You'll just have to take our word for it that we saw the beaver!
