He's back!

Certainly, a wish came true last weekend. A few years ago some beavers were setting out at Zuidlaardermeer. They supposed to be the leading ones to create a new population in the north of Holland. As this species is terrible shy it never crossed my mind I'll ever get a chance to take a good picture of this giant rodent. But that moment came faster then I expected. In a creek, miles away from Zuidlaardermeer, a presuming descendant has settled. Because of the frozen water, the beaver showed himself in the hole in the ice. So the only thing I had to do was waiting near a opening till the beaver showed up.
