For several days I have been camera-stalking the otters in Ashland Pond.  They were just here…  Bad light…  Wind and waves…  They are on the other side of the pond…  They disappear into the willows and go quiet…  They surface and dive within three seconds or less…missed ’em.  Until this morning…when one was eating his fishy brunch in full view.OT-1 OT-2 OT-3 OT-5 OT-6Today I saw only a single otter, not a pair as has been the case most days recently.
