Morning on the Lake

Before sunrise is the best time to be on the lake to see loons, eagles, and swimming beavers.

In the three images above a beaver can be seen swimming across the lake, then raising his tail to slap the water, and finally the resulting splash as he submerges.

It seemed like this beaver was intentionally showing himself to me and then swimming away — maybe to draw me away from the beaver lodge?

A loon parent was out patrolling the lake with the loon chick. The chick still appears to be thriving.

A bald eagle was perched watching the lake the entire time I was in the area.

Sunrise pictures; before and after the sun peeks over the horizon.
