river otters at fox lake

  1. we saw the otters here last fall when we were living here during odin's first weeks. today one swam by the dock and disappeared into the bush. i did a little recon and found it rolling in the dirt with another. ran back for my camera and spent the next half hour inching as close as i could get to them. made it within eight feet.

    was pretty proud of my stealth mode efforts, and was rewarded with a couple good shots!

    been a while since there have been some animal pics here on PPAD.

  2. What a fantastic shot, Phil. Your stealth mode is definitely worth some pride!
