Rob Stimpson, snapped this photo along Opeongo Lake Road in Algonquin Park of a family of river otters.
On the Thanksgiving weekend, the Park was so busy there was consideration given to closing the gates -- they were over capacity. Trails were jammed up with people, and while the views are always wonderful and the fall colours gorgeous the wildlife spotting suffers when there are too many people out there.
It's not a problem this time of year. We've got deer hanging on our lawns all day long. Lots of loons still crowded on the lake getting ready for their flight south (and we do hope they avoid the Great Lakes where the botulism issue is going on. We are not fans of dead seabirds)
Rob is famous for his stunning photography. Thanks for letting us post this one here to share!
