A lovely surprise on Amazon Creek!

As I was riding to work today along the Fern Ridge Bike Path (near Garfield Street), I stopped to watch a green heron hunting along the banks of Amazon Creek. It was obviously looking at something in the water, and I waiting for it to strike its next meal. To the surprise of the heron and myself, an otter’s head popped up, looked at both of us, and then dove down again.

It was such a pleasure to watch these two beautiful wetland animals in one exciting moment.
