The Otters Drop By

We have visitors.

I'm pretty sure we looked exactly like this
standing on the bank 
staring back at them. 
Hey, now --
those are my fish! 
Time to move on.
Ya'll are cute, but my pond is 
not an "all you can eat" buffet!

  5. Wow! That's a big fish for that otter! They ARE so fun to watch, but it must have been a surprise to find them in your pond. I've only seen them in the ocean or in a river.

  13. They are just adorable. We've seen them at Frank's family cottage a few years back and last week, we had a muskrat spend some time in our bay. I'll get some pics of him up eventually.

  25. I keep hoping to see otters. It's not fair. One day I was sure I had three of them in a pond and harassed them from a distance with a long lens, only to find out (in editing) that they were nutria. I thought they weren't bouncy enough.

  26. I'm not going to be able to tell how how jealous I am! If it was my pond they could have a few fish!!

    Wonderful thing to see!

  34. Oh, they are so cute!
    But i know what it takes to get a pond stocked with fish,
    so I feel for you.
    Terry, I have been getting your comments on my post, but
    they don't show up in my e-mail. So if I don't reply it is because
    I don't usually look back at my post page.

  41. Hi Terri, thank you for getting back to me on the problem I am having with the backlinks. I did as you suggested and my setting is already supposed to be hiding backlinks. I wonder does this mean the people who are showing my links have to do that at their end? Maybe? Anyhow, I will add an extra on my post suggesting that. Thanks again :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Eureka! Your advice worked for one happy blogger who set her link to hide and my links disappeared from her blog. Elephant Child at http://myjustsostory.blogspot.com/ is very grateful to you and sends her thanks. Me too!!! :) I will be letting everyone know when I come across them. I wish I could give you a big hug as this is such a relief. Thanks again dear Terri!!!
