River Otter


The thumbnails look dark, but if you click on the pictures you can see the river otter eating a freshly caught fish.



I'm not always around water in my alpine desert home but there is a lot of water in Yellowstone National Park. For more watery vistas, check out Watery Wednesday.

Caught in the act. Awesome captures! Certainly worth enlarging. Haven't seen any years since my days in the NW.

The water is so calm and serene. Great place for the otters.

Very cool shots of the Otter, the second one is brilliant with the ripples in the water, well done.

Cheers!

Loran, the little otter is so cute. I can't get over the number of animals you all saw in and around Yellowstone.

Thanks for sharing the otters!
Hugs,
Betsy

Lovely photos of the river otter. I love this creature but we don't often get to seem them where we live. What a treat to see it catching it's food. Thanks for sharing.
