26 acres of the New Hartford Land Trust butts up against my backyard.  Within this protected area there is a decent sized pond referred to locally as Beaver Pond, aptly named because of the high beaver activity (3 dens and a dam).  I recently went for a hike at dusk on Friday and spotted beavers for the first time.  Luckily I had my wife's Canon which has video capability, unlike my Nikon D70.  It's not the best for video but it's perfect for moments like this.

This was the first time I have seen beavers in the wild, so I was thrilled.  Apparently one of the best times to spot beavers is at dusk.  I guess Ray Mears was right.
