I'm continuously amazed at the intelligence and ability of animals. They don't just pile things up for the home. There is a design! Even the family of eagles that I've been watching since January does the same with raising the edges of the nest as the eaglets start hobbling around. Nature is incredible!

I love beavers. They seem to be very social.

Years ago my late wife and I were canoeing around a lake in Canada -- maybe a couple hour trip -- and a beaver followed us most all the way, every now and then splatting its tail in the water to get our attention. Very cool!

Another time I happened upon one building it's dam just outside the south border of Yellowstone Nati'l Park. I sat on the shoreline of the small creek/beaver pond watching and photographing while the sole beaver swam back and forth from one end of the pond to the other (dam). After awhile it started detouring to visit me and that became the norm, swimming over to the shoreline where I sat on each trip past me -- in both directions. It would stop on each trip and just look at me for maybe 10 seconds, then continue on its course. I sat there for at least a couple hours until it was dark. I felt like I'd made a new friend.
