Our favorite park here in Colorado Springs now has a fox den and a beaver house. Last night both were out.
We met downtown to walk the dogs after work. We saw out first beaver of the year. He/She was a baby, really small. We’ll try and get back down there at dusk this weekend and see if we can see how many are in this years “litter”. The Heron let me watch him for a little while, no koi while I was watching. Taylor took the dogs pictures, with my 7D and 40mm.
Friday night was supposed to be a trip down town to check out the fan fest for the Pikes Peak Hill Climb. No dogs allowed so we ended up down at the park walking the dogs. enjoy!
It was a good night at the pond in the park. The Heron found a great spot over a pump head to fish. He got himself a nice fat Koi. The Beaver was out as well, and had plenty of observers. All in all, a good night.
the Beavers were out, we saw 2 babies and the one we think is the mom. The mom is the one snagging willow branches from where it hangs over the water. It would also appear the beavers really need a little teeth whitening.
Saturday night, time to check out the beavers. Yep, its an exciting life we lead here in Colorado.It was essentially dark out for several of these pictures. I was really pushing the limits of my camera in many of these.
the Beaver is back in our favorite pond. We are pretty sure this is the male, and we did not see momma while we were there.
With the Williamson’s in town we took them downtown to see the beavers. The girls had a great time, and Lauren even got one to take a branch from her hands.
Monument valley and the beavers were back. She has 4 babies, all good sized.
