I thought you might enjoy this image of some real construction savy. I hope to get some pictures of the Beavers this Fall, but they are shy creatures. I shot this with the 18-55mm at F32 toget the shutter speed to slow the water. A couple days earlier, high water had washed part of this dam out and they fixed it like new. Pretty neat the way they have the water coming evenly over the dam. I wonder if they ever considered going into the contracting business. People pay big bucks to get a waterfall this nice in there backyard- Bruce

Cool Shot. Beavers really Do good Work. Unfortunatly they can Cause issues. My Uncle had his Driveway and lower part of His basement flooded. Because beavers had damed up his stream. First Heavy rain and Bam!!

I had the DNR come and blow the dam up behind my property, since it was starting to flood my pole shed and driveway. They then trapped the beavers and sent them far, far away from people.

Nice shot if the water running over the dam.

In the days of post 9-11, unless you really want to meet some new friends that work for the ATF, using explosives without a permit is not the best idea, even here in rural Wisconsin.

Back in high school, many years ago, we just bought some dynamite at the hardware store, or made a pipe bomb, and blew it up ourselves.

:ODynamite from the local hardeware store? Wow...you really are rural.

You're right about the "post 9/11" stuff. People have no sense of humor about that kind of thing now. :sad:
