Beaver on the Ipswich

It has been a while since I have posted fresh material from Massachusetts. This morning the sky had was stained bright red, a harbinger of unfavorable weather. After enduring the rainy weather of Ketchikan, I’m rather accustomed to working in soggy weather. After all, in Ketchikan, it is easy to tell the locals from the tourists. Locals don’t use umbrellas. So, out the door I went, and I was very much rewarded.

Another reward I granted was this picture of a beaver having a snack. This is the first time I have seen a beaver above water.

The next three frames are a succession photos of a beaver slapping its tail on the water, which is mostly done as a alarm. The first image is the tail going up…

immediately followed by a dive. You can see one foot below and the tail in the middle of the splash.
