Late afternoon is a good time to see wildlife but the low light makes it hard to get sharp pictures.
We can almost always see a blue heron at the pond.
Egrets too, are common. When this one came the heron said "leave, this is my spot" and the egret flew off, looking like a graceful dancer on toe.
Then I saw something in the shadows, moving in the water. It's motion didn't seem quite right for a duck.
Could it be another creature I have been looking for for years?
YES! There was a pair or river otters! You can bet I will be back as often as I can to see if I can get some more pictures of this elusive but interesting critter.
