This family is very shy, and they don't much care for having their pictures taken, but if I am sneaky, I can snap a few.
Here is the mother and child.
The little one saw me and swam off into their home, but Mom kept on munching.
This beaver was busy, busy, pulling branches and continually working at the dam.
In another part of town, not far from here, is a place called Creamer's Field. This farm is a migratory bird sanctuary, and is simply amazing this time of year (last month especially) with the THOUSANDS of birds traveling south for the soon-coming winter.
There are many species of birds coming through, but you really see lots of Canadian Geese and Sandhill Cranes. It is so cool seeing the many V's of birds flying overhead. Sandhill Cranes in particular are very vocal birds, and you can't miss their passing.
Just a few of our neighbors. These are the best kind.
