Busy Beavers

The beaver are back. They set up camp last year, but Dad thought they were gone, having seen little sign of them this spring. But, as beavers are, they've been busy and have taken down a large swath of trees behind the barn.
Freshly cut.

Just started.

Dad is afraid to leave the tractors in the field lest they drop a tree on them.

Precious little keeps this tree from going over.

Their trail down to the dugout where they have built their lodge.

The channels they have cut to transport their lumber.

While they can be destructive little rascals, one has to marvel at their industry and engineering abilities.
