Monday afternoon I took a quick drive around the lake at Weldon Springs. Not expecting to see much let alone come home with anything interesting, a lone gull would change that. On the hunt for fish, it made a noble but ultimately unsuccessful catch attempt from within range. Towards the end I spotted a swimming beaver that upon each surface would raise its tail out of the water. I have no idea why it did this but believe it may have been to help keep it steady against the stiff headwind of the time.
