The "Biesbosch" in winter

We paddled through mirror-like water in the Biesbosch this afternoon. Highlight of the day was a close encounter with a large beaver. Although the beaver entered the water very relaxed, I was to slow (and lacked a camera with a decent zoom-lens) to make a good picture of this fascinating animal. Nevertheless, it was a joyful experience. Perhaps I should attend this "beaver-fotoworkshop" with 100% beaver guarantee (?!) to learn to shoot beavers (click on the link for information about the workshop and some nice pictures of a Biesbosch Beaver - PS: "our" beaver was much larger than this one ;-).
