Eat And Run

Meet "Nessie" the otter. Nessie is a boy otter who spent the better part of eight days dining in the pond in our back yard. He ate fish and crayfish mostly, often under the steady gaze of my camera. Sometimes as close as 15 ft away, he expressed a curiousity and, at the same time, I believe a bit of disdain for my presence. Still, that didn't put a damper on his appetite. Watching him eat crawdads was at times exciting and other times comical.

It's good to know that the ecosystem around here is strong enough to support river otters. They're amzing creatures to watch up close and I have been fortunate enough to spend some hours with one. more of NESSIE
