Disappointing. I went to Beardsley Park to look for the turkeys and guinea fowl that roam wild around there. Naturally, I didn't see a single turkey (first time ever), but I did find this curious otter hamming it up for the camera. Last year I spotted two wild otters, including one in a river right in the middle of downtown Norwalk.

The focus/sharpness on this is pure excellence. I've never seen an otter shot with such detail.
