Beavers Enjoy an Evening Dinner

Had a pleasant evening time alone with a pair of beavers in the Upper and Lower Lakes WMA area in Canton. The beavers were diving to the pond bottom to pull up what I believe were the tubers of water lily plants and were then munching them while floating on the pond surface. The beavers had absolutely no concerns about my presence and so I was able to take many photos of them. A beautiful sunset enhanced the experience.
