I like walking the trail located near the Sandtown area of the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma. I have taken a lot of photos of wildlife while walking this trail. It is a paved trail so I can walk it quietly.
A pond is also located near the trail and a couple of Beavers have made a home there. This pond has thick brush between it and the trail and this makes it difficult to see and photograph any wildlife on this pond. This spring the Beavers have mashed some of the plants down making it easier to walk closer to the pond. They have created several paths to the water.
Early in the mornings I like going to this area and sitting near the pond. Sometimes I will get lucky and the Beavers will be outside the there lodge swimming or up on the bank.
Last week I was able to photograph a Beaver swimming the pond located near the Sandtown Trail. It walked up on the pond bank several times but I was unable to get a good photo because of the brush or the distance.
