Day 9.123: Another large mammal

I was surprised to have another close encounter of the animal kind on my run this morning. I spotted a beaver climb down into the water and it was kind enough to swim around nearby while I got my phone out to take a few pictures:

Just as I was wondering if I could be sure it was a beaver and not a large muskrat, it slapped its tail on the water and dived briefly. I had heard of this behaviour but never seen it - but it nicely confirmed the animal's identity!
