Great Egret, preening

Is there anything cooler than a great egret's neck? Maybe an elephant's trunk.

Otters at Heather Farm Park

This blog has been so neglected, but that's how it goes in the winter, unless I tour a greenhouse. The weather is spring-like this week, so I've been outside more often. Today's walk in the park was fruitful. I almost didn't bring my camera when I left the house, but then I thought: I bet I'll see otters. I haven't seen them in a while since the last time I tried to photograph them on my pathway, hissing at me (a speeding mountain-biker chased them away). My intuition proved correct and so: otters. They were fishing. Not razor-sharp clarity due to my tiny lens, but good enough for my purposes.
