My hubby went out to marsh by himself, with some gear, as I was a little down in the dumps today. Was sitting there waiting on waterfowl when four Otters came along playing in the water, and checking out the "bush" with a lens sticking out of it.

They are cute. You have some pretty cool wild-life in your part of the world. Thank for sharing with the rest of us.

Glad you liked them RM. Should have seen last week. Had five bear in our field. Was so cool to see. Three more on our road on way to town too.

Can't say as I don't think you have some "very" interesting wildlife in your own part of the world also.

Awesome ... blinds are wonderful things, aren't they? I have yet to get one, or make one .... I am usually the guy in the LOUD shirt ... and I had no idea that you had otters there ... we only have muskrats and beavers, as far as I know ... never seen an otter in any of our lakes or marshes ...

He did say a thanks to all of you, even though he says the pics did not do them justice.

In all actuality, we see Otters here quite commonly. (sorry Larry). We actually sat beside a beaver hutch after watching two adults enter it. After a few seconds you could here the young suckling on Mom as they made mewling/nursing sounds. Was amazing, to say the least. Last one seen before this was running along road in front of us for a stretch as we drove up to it while four-wheelin'. Was so cool, as both these times we had friends up that got to witness both encounters. No matter how many we see, they never cease to amaze us every time we see them though.
