I put a camera on a tree about 20 feet from the corner of the house. I have, as many of you know, been involved in a war with the beavers. They are winning. At the same corner of the house was a huge twenty year old lilac. WAS. Not anymore. I didn't know that beavers would a) come that close to the house b) eat lilac. Now, I know. The second thing that is close to the side of the house, is the woodpile. Beavers had been dismantling the part with the freshly sawed birch logs. I'd found several pieces floating in the pond (before it froze) with all the bark eaten. Curious little buggers. I wanted to catch them in the act. HA!
Here's what I got. That ain't no beaver. This is early evening, I was probably on the other side of the wall, at the sink, in front of the window, unable to see out into the dark...
The three lights in the background are reflections off my parked car. Note, that is 6:08 pm. We'd only just come inside. I think. I've always told Chris that the bears are around, not to worry, just make a little noise so they can tell where we are. Yep. I bet they always know where we are.
This was back in November, but I have been so busy, I never checked the camera, until today. Imagine my surprise.
