Quabbin has an ample supply of riverine Otters. You might not expect to see them way up in a beaver pond, but you certainly will,
summer and winter. This picture was shot at the Gate 36 beaver pond. One of the most comprehensive articles on otters here.


Nothing much to add, except it was just one of those delightful, "right place, right time" wildlife encounters.


It's just so much fun to look at a scene and conceptualize how it might look if I did this, or this, or this?
