I had a great new wildlife experience the other day when I realized there was
some sort of animal fishing in the pond. It was hard to get a good look, as it
barely surfaced between dives, but my assumption is it was some sort of otter.
It was really cool seeing this in action, even with how elusive it was. My hopes
that this entertainment would continue have not come true, however, as aside
from that one sighting, it does not seem to have returned. This actually makes
sense, as while the pond is fairly large as decorative ponds go, it's still a
pretty small hunting ground, and probably wouldn't provide enough fish to
sustain an otter for very long. We're not that far from a pretty large lake, and
I imagine that this would be far more appealing to an otter, presuming it stays
in the area. But I do hope it returns for an occasional visit.
