Beaver Surfacing

Two days after I took this picture of a larger lone male beaver surfacing through this thin layer of ice ,the same beaver was moving a seven foot long log which was at least six inches in diameter under the ice covered lake and it surfaced unexpectedly . I was only sixty feet from that location to video tape the beaver chewing the log in half while floating in the broken up ice . The lake had now froze solid and this dilemma would take over twenty minutes to attempt to remedy. The green piece of cotton wood took fourteen minutes of non stop chewing to cut in half . The beaver was trying to move it to his lodge or beaver house which was only about five hundred yards from the surfaced Piece of cotton wood . That is another story
