On and In the Red River Today

It is a very chilly morning at 9C when Chester and I took our walk to the Red River, but the sun is shining and rain is not in the forecast for today, .  We hadn’t gone far when I spotted something in the water.  I wasn’t sure if it was just something floating or something swimming, but soon decided it was moving on its own.

With my trusty zoom lens on the camera I zeroed in on it, but still couldn’t tell what it was.  Just then a bunch of rowers went by, with a motorboat on the side.  Unfortunately, after the motorboat went by, the critter was nowhere to be seen.  I hoped I would be able to tell what it was after downloading the pictures.

Unfortunately, it is still not clear to me what it actually is though.  I’ve got the pictures though, in case someone else can tell from the little bit that is above water.  I got pictures of the rowers too.

The motor boat did not hit the critter, but the waves certainly went over it.

    1. We have both otters and beavers here blosslyn, and I have seen beavers along this area before. But this was just barely moving and I’ve never seen either of them move that slowly. Unless I see it again and get a better look, I think this will remain a mystery.
