      This otter was checking me out.  I’d been following him (her?) from a distance in my kayak.  After a few minutes the otter stopped and waited for me to get closer.  I got my pic.  The otter vanished.

    I started carrying a camera with me at all times after I had to stop on Keswick dam to let a family of otters cross the road from river side to lake side.   Oh, and seeing fishers twice on that road. Great photo!
