[Homestead] It's a wild place, this

For weeks now I've been seeing movement in the pond created by the
beaver plugging of the culvert. By the time I get the binoculars it
has stopped. If I keep the binoculars on the front porch, then, of
course, a new bird appears in the back yard and I miss seeing it well
because the binocs are out front.
So this morning, as the light rain follows the heavy rain, I see more
water movement at the pond. This time I get the binocs and focussed in
time to see what it is--four beautiful otters. Look young by the size
Otters are hell on fish and when I get to the point of raising fish
for food they will provide yet one more challenge with trying to
balance a civilized life in a wild place.
