At my parent's house on Friday, I saw something long and dark by the pond and thought it might be a gator. It wasn't.*

Did it take anybody else until the 4th shot to figure out what it was? Or am I just blind?

It's a little obscure until the 4th shot. The camera I grabbed doesn't have a great zoom and my moving closer was scaring them off.

I didn't see at it first, either. But now I do!

I still can't figure it out.  My mind has come up with: a seal, a dog, or a skunk.  I don't think any of those are correct, though.  I'm also not sure why some of those would be better than an alligator (well, aside from the deadly gatorness).

It's a trio of otters.

The front half of the subdivision my parents live in is a bird and wildlife sanctuary (complete with large marsh area). We see all sorts of creatures.

Listing to Mel Gibson's rant cheers me up a bit.  Not entirely sure why -- he's pretty angry -- I suppose it's a touch of schadenfreude, he doesn't strike me as someone who deserves much happiness. 

Kudos to Eszterhas's kid for turning the tape on.
