Her name is Betty, she moved into the pond in front of my home a couple of years ago and has become a close friend of mine.
We sit on the bank together as she oils her coat and cleans her fur. She talks constantly and I do my best to pretend that I know her language.
In this short video, she is gathering winter food for her raft which will keep her family fed through the ice filled months.
She has taught me volumes about the ways of the pond and beaver folk.
I share this moment in time with you so that you may see how we as humans can be accepted by the wild ones if we choose to lose our egos.
