Tail slapping at Wild Rose
A couple of weeks ago I spent the morning at the Wild Rose ponds in West Bragg. I watched this beaver swimming on the far side of the pond for several minutes before turning away to watch the sunrise. I realized she had kept coming my way when I heard the first tail slap on the water. She was about 15 metres away and had set a course parallel to me and the shoreline. I took this photograph of her as she raised her tail for another slap. She wasn’t too happy with my presence so I moved along after one more slap.
Beautiful, perfect timing! great shot!

I love the spray behind – you can see each droplet of water, incredible!

I always find Christopher Martin’s photographs exceptionally beautiful. For me, spending time in nature is therapeutic. Through the eyes of the photographer, this image and description of a morning on Wild Rose pond — watching a beaver tail slapping protecting its home — lets me experience a little slice of nature’s awesomeness and enjoy some of its therapeutic benefit as well.
