(thought of you Lone Grey Squirrel)
"These all wait for You, that You may give them their food in due season. What You give them they gather in; You open Your hand, they are filled with good." Psalm 104:27-28
I guess the beavers have been BUSY in the last couple weeks. Most of the trees in this park have chicken wire wrapped around the bottoms to prevent this but I guess those clever beavers found the one tree that didn't. I chuckled as I took the photo. But then I realized that this was one of the nicest trees in the area for beautiful fall foliage. I have several shots of its vibrant yellow leaves against a saphire blue sky. A couple more nights and this tree will be ancient history. Food, shelter & dam materials! Whatcha gonna do?
I have yet to see any of these beavers up close, but at sunset, I have seen them swimming out in their lagoon. Its quite a big lagoon/pond that they've created for themselves and they are heavily protected from prying eyes or visitors pets because the pond is surrounded by reeds/bull rushes. It is a beautiful haven at all times of the year for me.
Still iced over
I never cease to be amazed at how well God provides for His animals.
"Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your Heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?" Matthew 6:26
"He gives to the beast its food, and to the young ravens that cry. " Psalm 147:9
