Beavers in the Flood

 I have only seen one beaver at a time on Lake Kittamaqundi before, but yesterday I came across the whole family flooded out of their shelter by Hurricane Sandy. This is the stream that runs from Wilde Lake just before it empties into Kittamaqundi. Later, water level had gone down noticeably, and the beavers apparently had returned to their lodge (wherever it is on the lake). In the lower photo, there are actually three beavers: Look for two on land huddled next to each other. hocoblogs@@@
