Thank-you to Heather Pantrey for these photos! I went the next day, but the pond had frozen over and the otter may have moved on.
I thought you might like to know that there is a Otter in the pond at Col. Sam.
My otter photo experience comes from the Toronto Zoo a few years ago.
The otter, I’m told,
will never grow cold,
no matter how chilly the water.
Instead he will float
in his lovely fur coat
while the warmth of his fur makes him ‘otter.
