Summer Otters

All summer long there were many otters in the beaver pond. And all summer long I grabbed my camera, sometimes the tripod, ran down to the fence or across the road, and photographed them. These are the best shots that I got. What a disappointment! They never showed their faces like they have other years.

There were more otters than ever this year. I am always surprised that they come because otters and beaver do not like each other. In fact, they hate each other. I've been waiting for the otters to come this winter and slid onto the ice on the snow. Nothing yet. I'll let you know if they show up!
