First time I've ever put the SLR out in the woods, so this was more of a proof of concept for me and still lots to learn and adjustments to make. Only played around with it in the backyard for a few days but had this D3200 with two SB-28 flashes setup built for a year. It looked like the beaver had cataracts in one picture but further research leads me to believe its a "Nictitating membrane", which is used to help protect the eye in some situations. These are screenshots of the original RAW pictures which I left untouched.

Really nice pics you got there. So, is this fella in the midst of building a dam?

Yep, he/she is out there every night building away. Makes for easy SLR testing :)

Fantastic photos! Great detail. Good observation regarding the beaver's eye. I'm not entirely sure, but I thought beaver had a clear nictitating membrane? There are some very knowledgeable wildlife folks on this site. I hope someone will chime in with an answer.

I've photographed a wolverine with a similar looking eye. When using Reconyx cams, the damaged eye didn't reflect flash, but the "good" eye did. I wonder if the beaver you photographed has a damaged eye? A Cyclops?

Super photos -- looks like a cloudy lens, similar to cataract. This would prevent eye shine if the flash was not offset, as seen in kalon's wolverine photos. The nictitating membrane in beaver is used underwater from what I understand.
