Basking Beaver    ... from my paddle on the Chalk River on Friday. Not sure what was going on here; this is the closest I've ever approached a beaver in the wild without spooking it. Perhaps he was just enjoying the sun and didn't perceive me as a threat. Or perhaps I was blocking his only route to deep water.
