Crex Meadows Wildlife Area, part 2

Part two of our visit to the Crex Meadows Wildlife area - we saw and heard several Sandhill Cranes, the one on the last picture was alone and wouldn't stop squaking... maybe he/she was looking for a companion. But the highlight were the beavers, especially the one we saw right at sunset that turned the whole scenery into a golden light, even the water. This guy was busy munching away on a cattail root. Once or twice he got upset and splashed his tail but I guess his hunger was greater and our presence less annoying. 
Enjoy! Susanne
