North American Beaver Eating Water Plants

By | September 1, 2021

I have been seeing a North American Beaver Eating Water Plants at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma. It seems to be in the same spot every morning I’m in the area for the past several months. It had its back to me the other times I saw it, but this time it was facing me.

How I Got The Photo:

This Beaver has been in an area known as Miner’s Cove. This cove has been my go-to location for photographing wildlife. I like to arrive before sunrise and park and wait for it to get light enough to start photographing.

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