Sky Watch Friday: What The Beaver See

The view of my house (white, on right) from the top of the flume at the top of the beaver bog.

From the same spot, with some zoom, the Duquette Barn, down the road from me. The beaver bog is known locally as Duquette Flats after the bachelor farmers who lived at that farm in the early years of the 20th century. If you click on the photo to view it full-size, you can see, on the left of the photo, the old shed at the top of the main beaver dam and part of Doyle Road.

When clicked, these photos will open, full size, in a new window.
Thank you for visiting.

  1. These are very nice photographs. I wish it were possible for us to have beavers but not possible. There would be too many people opposed to them building anything here.

  8. OK, we need to do this:

    BLS: Beaver Lovers' Society. Or SLB, Society of Lovers of Beavers. Nah. BR. Beavers Rock. SMABLISYAB: Show me a beautiful landscape, I'll show you a beaver.

    Your bog is gorgeous. This photo is so very rich.

    I will go for a walk tomorrow and get a portrait of our little ol' beaver bog and post it in solidarity with this rich image. With any luck, granddaddy goose will be doing his impersonation of a weather vane atop the beaver lodge!

  13. Andree, you live in such a beautiful place. I know we have our own brand of natural beauty here, but a beaver bog just sounds so darn perfect! lol

    I happened upon a quarter section of swans hanging out in the rain today. And discovered a new bird (wish I would have had your zoom with me to identify it. It's beak reminded me of a kookaburra, and I can't think of what it could possibly be!) We were also treated to a dive bombing by an owl today, so it was a pretty good wildlife day, overall, just no beaver bogs!
