Thanks so much, Delana, Eileen, and Wilma! :) Yes, it was SO exciting to see! I could hear trees crashing as I was walking around by the main stream taking pics and wondered what on earth it was---a bear maybe? I almost started laughing out loud when I saw that beaver coming down the ditch with that big tree trailing behind it! I debated on taking a video or still pics but can't post video on here for everyone to see so I went with stills.

Hi! My name is Kathy and I live in northern Minnesota, USA, where the winter temps have dipped down to -60º below zero F. The summers used to be mild but in recent years have been up in the 90ºs---too hot for me. I love being able to travel the world from my office chair, through all your great photos! I've learned tons about photography and editing photos thanks to all the great people on here and their willingness to share tips. Thank you to all you Wunderfriends who take time to look and leave notes---I deeply appreciate it. :-)free hit countersCreate your own visitor map!
