Parker’s NaturePosted: August 18, 2012

By Shawn Parker and Julie Babcock

We shot this beaver up St. Mary’s on the weekend. We followed him around about 20 minutes. He’d dive, then resurface and swim around a bit. He climbed onto this log about three times. I was paddling, Julie was in the front of the canoe with the camera; she came to within a couple feet of the beaver. Our friend Sandy was in a kayak with foot peddles, she followed it for the longest time, about five feet behind it, just a clicking away. I love living here; always surprised with what you see. I’m always hoping shots like this will come along, sometimes they do, usually they don’t. We were actually hoping to see this moose that sometimes frequents the area. Even if we see nothing, it’s awesome to get out and paddle around a bit, enjoy the sunshine.
