Winter Beaver [Wordless Wednesday]

American Beaver

It has been a while since I have done a Wordless Wednesday . . . figured why not upload some Beavers swimming around in the frigid ice cold water! I think we all are ready for spring to arrive!

Swimming in ice cold water!

  1. Well, if there are folks out there longing for spring, who am I to say–no.
    But, I’d like a bit more snow first. (Sorry to all who have had their fill–we have had almost no snow.)
    Until spring–I’ll be happy with more photos of these lovely creatures.

    LOL to a bit more snow-I don’t think we have to worry about Spring arriving too soon!

    I love Beavers-cool shots of them

    I just love to see beavers. Idon’t get to see them very often. I usually see the work they do, gnawing trees.

    Good to see that you haven’t froze up somewhere in all that snow Mon@rch.

  4. Looking forward to Spring, to be sure. But, we haven’t had anywhere near enough rain out here yet. If we don’t get more, it’s going to be a long and ugly summer.

    That said, feeling for those beavers. I know their coats are warm but brrrrr!

  5. Love to see the beavers acting like the polar bears. They’ve got the pool all to themselves.

  6. Nice photos–they look so cold! Spring can’t come too soon for me.

  7. Great to see those beaver photographs. I’m sure their perfect fur coats will keep them warm through the spell of arctic weather.

  8. You gotta love that beaver face. They sure are always busy. Now I see where that expression comes from. I would have thought they’d hibernate.

  9. Cute. I’ve not seen a beaver face in such detail before. They are much nicer than the cartoon representations.

  11. @ KGMom – I would be happy to share the waste deep snow that I had to trample through today! 🙂
    @ Marg – As much as I would love spring to arrive . . . I really hate the FREEZING COLD temps that we have right now!
    @ Lisa . . I might be a little cold but sucks my gas bill will be a little higher now!
    @ Liza . . They do have some warm coats on them . . !
    @Science Guy . . these one guy did have the pool to himself!
    @ Joan . . . I was ready weeks ago! 🙂
    @ Robin – They don’t seem to worry about the weather too much . . I love seeing the drag marks across the snow when I am out hiking!
    @ Linda . . they store much of their food underwater in the fall to survive the winter! You can commonly find drag marks going to the open areas of the ponds!
    @ Wren – they are cute for sure! Thanks and it has been hard getting back into things again! My RSS feeds are crazy right now . . . But I do appreciate your kind words!

    Only 2 weeks of January left. I can always find signs of spring in February. And the days are getting longer!

  14. Open water? What is that? Our local beaver pond is solid and I bet yours is too this week.

  15. I am sooo NOT ready for spring yet… Only been skiing once and snowshoeing twice… Give it time, people… give it time!
