Evening walk, and a beaver

I went for an evening walk. It was a beautiful spring evening, and I headed for a nearby pond.

I looked over to my right, and saw something rippling across the pond.DSC_0592 (2)DSC_0599 (2)

He ended up swimming straight at me, probably curious about this unmoving figure on the shore (a strange new tree?), until he was within six feet of me and I said, “That’s too close!” in a startled voice, and he dived and disappeared from view.

Then I walked home, satisfied.
