Otters Outta Sight! November 6, 2010

Posted by nrhatch in Animals, Life Balance, Nature.

IMGP1530aI stepped onto the deck this morning and saw an otter playing on the opposite bank.

As he rolled around on the grass, he kept looking at the water, waiting for his playmates to appear.

They did!  Two more otters joined the first furry fellow!

Entranced, we watched the trio race up and down the banks before diving back into the water and disappearing from view.

Otters . . . Outta Sight!

And you didn’t take any photos! For shame! We’ve got some beavers around our creek. Unfortunately, while we were away last May, our pet sitter told us that one morning when he took Princess out for her walk, before he could stop her, she jumped out and snapped the neck of a cute little baby beaver that had decided to wander across our yard. We haven’t seen any, but apparently there is a family nearby! And, to let Princess off the hook, she was doing what comes naturally! 😦 and 🙂

They were too far away for my camera. We watched them through binnoculars.

Poor little baby beaver . . . but that’s the way of the wild.

So lucky! Otters are magical creatures.

Maybe you should do a PiBoId for Otters!!!

Have you ever read Ring of Bright Water? It’s about an Otter. I loved it as a child.

What a treat to see them 🙂

It really is. We see them 2-3 times a month, if we are lucky.

They don’t live in our lagoon . . . but they visit it with regularity.

if you step out and see that no wonder you are so happy all the time!

Nature does, indeed, put a smile on my face! 🙂
