Sunday Nature Stills – 05/08/2022

I photographed this little beaver in the middle of the night in the Canadian arctic neat the Peel River in the Northwest Territories. There were more beavers in the arctic and sub arctic than I expected.  Seeing them in that environment, I can’t help but picture them cozy in their dens hibernating during the long winters waiting for those endless summer arctic days, but it’s interesting that thy don’t actually hibernate in the winter.
