some eager beaver

came so close to felling this tree.
unfortunately he didn't notice the embracing arms of another tree downhill,
waiting to catch the girdled tree in its limbs.

It seems a bit dangerous to leave it that way.

Nice find. Maybe he just momentarily disappeared for a respite and will resume gnawing soon.

Did it ever come down? MB

What a wonderful capture! So funny. Poor beaver.

Re your comment about antiques: I don't like antique shops too much 'cause everything in them is stuff that was part of my youth!

Really, a beaver did that?! Think of all that gnawing . . .and no reward.

Hmm. Maybe a bit too perfectly cut for a beaver's teeth. Since this is about felling a tree, it reminds of the old carpenter's saying: measure twice and saw once.

It almost looks like a sculpture of a balancing pencil out there in wilderness Brattcat!

Ah well, the best-laid plans of beavers and men often go awry... but it sure is a neat photo!

I've seen beaver dams but never this. Great find!
