...along the Mystic Lake Road on Saturday. I photographed a number of culverts along the way, including a huge ice filled culvert at McRobbie Lake. Then I sat near a huge beaver dam and painted.
I worked on a small canvas and kept things simple. While I was painting, an otter popped up in front of me and looked me over before it moved on. I guess it didn't think much of the painting. An hour later it popped up again, heading back the way it came. It took one quick look and then pulled its head underwater. Thanks, I said. Thanks a lot.
