The latest beaver dam has now re-created the pond that existed about twenty-five years ago when the beavers first flooded the area now known as the beaver bog. You can see the new pond at the top of this image. The water that has leaked through the dam, seen in the lower part of the image, makes the image you see in the previous post.
During my walk along the Augusta Greenway on Friday last, I was surprised by a pair of eagles appearing overhead (see my previous post). Not long after that event, while sitting down on a stone block by the Kennebec Arsenal property, a lone osprey cruised north over the Kennebec river at about 40 feet. Suddenly, right in front of me, the bird dove straight down and Bam! It pulled out a fish and then, while I scrambled again to get my telephoto lens unlocked, auto focus engaged, camera turned ON!, it rose up off the water right toward me and then leveled off, heading to the right as if to show me the goods. What am I, an Inland Fish and Wildlife warden now? The overhanging trees are blocking some the view here, but thank the gods for all my Nikon and Tamron technology!
