"It was ten o' clock at night
and still light. My husband Jay and I were sitting quietly around a campfire
on the edge of a small lake in a remote wilderness area of northern Canada.
It was July, and the northern latitude gave us daylight until eleven p.m.
The bush pilot who had flown us there in a small plane had long since left.
We were the only two people camped on the lake; in fact, there was no one
else in the entire valley. Imagine our disbelief at hearing what sounded
like large rocks being thrown into the lake. Closer scrutiny revealed the
large rocks to be a beaver slapping his tail on the surface of the lake,
loudly demonstrating his alarm and displeasure at having us camped so close
to his home. He was telling us that he was alarmed and displeased at our
having camped so close to his home. The following day, we located his stick
and mud lodge along the shore line. On subsequent evenings, we would crouch
behind the lodge and take photographs as the beaver family emerged to gather
leaves and twigs from the quaking aspen along the shore. Our chance encounter
with the beavers led me to wonder about other accidental meetings. I let
my sense of fun and whimsy be my guide and 'Whoo!!?' is the result. This
was my first encounter with beavers. They are interesting, comical animals,
and I enjoyed putting one in the context of surprising a rather solemn neighbor
- which also allowed me to play with unusual perspectives!" - Bev Doolittle
