This is the same North American Beaver (North American Beaver Eating Water Plants) I photographed and posted about.

The Beaver Swimming Toward Me was photographed at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma. It was carrying the water plants it was eating in its mouth. It wanted to cross the road but changed its mind when it saw my pickup.

My camera and lens were resting on a bean bag draped over the open window of my pickup.
