Bitterroot beaver

Bitterroot Beaver 1In a rare treat today, a beaver strolled and swam upstream past our front window.

Incredible on many fronts, this was an exciting event for us.

None of us three had ever seen one in the wild, ever.

Here was this one 30-feet away.

And, by all appearances, impervious to the ice and icy water.

No wonder their coats are prized.

P. S. Did I mention how much I LOVE my new Canon SX710 HS?

It zoomed in and out on command and just flat TOOK these pictures
through the front window.
Dang clever … and easy to use.
