How beautiful Merisi, keep them coming.
Definitely a beaver! You can see the teeth marks in the stump, and the chippings at the side are typical.But most intriguing of all, whose knickers are those? Someone been runcible there, do you suppose?
Wonderful seeing this shots of this beautiful river I've heard about all my life!Susan
The river is a haven for all kinds of life! Lovely series of photos, full of surprises.
I`ll be singing the song the whole day!!!I`ts beautiful...
Just BEAUTIFUL! Maria :)
Thank you all for your comments!BARBARA:I will, all the beauty I can capture. :-)MAALIE:I couldn't believe my eyes when I spotted that tree trunk, it literally stopped me in my tracks. Such a déjà vu moment! Really eerie, having looked at your blog post about Russia moments before I left for my hike, and I didn't expect beavers down there at all (next hike, bear tracks! *grin*). Those knickers? Dunno. Maybe somebody had to flee when a bear approached? ;-)SUSAN:I am slowly discovering that legendary river, truly beautiful (and then, having grown up by a river, I love every river). KATE:This is the more urban part of the river, and still, it gives harbor to many life forms. Little bit more downriver there are alluvial forests and wetlands that seem eons away from today's life. Like paradise.GYPSY PURPLE:Wherever I lived, when I heard that waltz (or any other) I always felt a connection to the music. Strange. ParisBreakfasts.CAROL, don't forget your waterproof hiking boots! :-))))
