Gratuitous Beaver Shots

Beaver Swimming in RdP OK OK, sorry for the sensational headline, but it was trully a bonus to find a beaver swimming in the Riviere des Prairie behind the College Gerald Godin last weekend. I wasn’t sure how these would turn out but I grabbed the new Pentax K200D and my trusty old 80-200 and grabbed some pretty nice pics of our Castor canadensis having a lovely soak and doing a little fishing of his own.

After snapping away for about 20 shots I turned around and make my way up the hill and join the rest of the family, I spotted this little mallard sitting all by herself grooming and trying to stay warm.  Montreal MallardMontreal Mallard

What a great day out.
