Ice off may be a little late this year…

…but that didn’t keep this lucky otter from finding a delicious meal below the ice on April 4th! I was lucky enough to have my camera out as he brought this snapping turtle up onto the shore at the north end of the lake and gorged himself on fresh meat. When an eagle and some crows arrived he relocated to the middle of the lake, finished eating, and dropped the carcass back into the water. No free meal for the birds, who looked a little disappointed!
