Beethoven the Beaver

After photographing the red sun falling behind the slipping into its nightly bliss, I walked over the Beaver Point. Lo and behold, the was a beaver sitting on the opposite bank of the Rio Grande grooming to Beethoven’s 5th Symphony. I tried to hold the Bazooka as steady as possible in the low dusk light, capturing video of this classical Beaver, Beethoven the Beaver.

    • He’s a really big, fat beaver. I’m happy you got a laugh out old fat Beethoven. Thanks, Brian.

    • Hahaha! Thanks, Mary Jo. Actually he does all the scratching to release oils that keep water from penetrating is skin.

  1. what a great video with your classical music Timothy …. Cute beaver looks like he’s leading the symphonyπŸ’–πŸ’–β£οΈβ£οΈβ£οΈπŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ™

  2. Ok what was this guy doing Tim? He is the cutest thing ever. I adore this little guy and this dance – does it happen to be something to do with a female? I love that you named him. I will have to listen tomorrow. I have no sound right now but this is precious. Thanks for sharing this. Love ❀️ Joni

    • Thanks, Joni. Beavers scratch to release oil onto their skin and fur so water doesn’t penetrate their skin. You will really like it with the music.

      • Oh I can’t wait. I wasn’t at home and I want to get out the computer and show my Scott with the music. Now at least I know what the heck he was doing. So hilarious. Hugs πŸ€— you two

  3. I can’t believe how crazy your video is with your movie, it looks like he is playing an instrument. It is very creative Tim. I just love it and I didn’t know what it was doing until you told me. In a couple of places it almost looks like he has a little one underneath him especially in one of the stills you have. Beautiful and very entertaining work my friend. Pretty amazing creatures. He or she looks so satisfied with all the oil he had released. Thanks for that, what a treat. Hugs and love to you both. Joni

    • I knew you would like it with the music. The “little one is his tail” It ‘d hard to tell what it is.

  4. Beethoven has man-boobs! And I thought I had gained a lot of weight during the pandemic! This was quite enjoyable, definitely put a smile on my face. Thanks!
