Here is one I snapped earlier (June 2017)



I attended a lecture evening recently and apparently there are now 7 beaver families holding 13 territories on the rivers Otter and Tale reaching right up into the Blackdown hills so they'll sure to be getting down into the Culm/Clyst/Tone rivers soon.

Thanks everyone.
Closeups don't seem to be as simple with this camera, Sony, as with my previous Panasonic Lumix. Both are just compacts but the Lumix had a macro zoom setting. However, the Sony, has a tilting screen which I love; swings and roundabouts.
This bimble was also my first using viewfinder (I know, I'm well behind the learning curve) but am proud to report that I achieved a magnificent 1.8mph despite photography, lunch and church stops ;D

That's some close up! Do you just put the camera very close, or.....?

If you mean the beaver - zoomed in. He/she was about 30 foot away, broad sunlight @ 7pm. With short nights in June they are up before dark.
