Top 5: Otter Photos

I’ve been lucky in Yellowstone these past 2 summers, watching groups of otters doing their thing – and the shows have apparently been quite a rare thing to witness according to others.

Here are my top 5 photos of les otters from the past two summers:

Number 5

Golden light, watching these cute little dudes sleep on a fallen log over one of the most beautiful lakes I have seen (Trout Lake, Yellowstone National Park).

Number 4

Mama, eating her trout and fighting off her 2 pups. What a task. PS – some noisy tourist disrupted their flow, that’s what they are looking at!

Number 3

How waterproof does their fur look? Nice.

Number 2

Nice whiff of a fresh trout being eaten. Yum – she sure enjoyed it!

Number 1

I have a whole sequence of this – including his/her brother/sister coming to join. Unfortunately, my lens was set at manuel, and resulted in somewhat blurry photos. Ahh…there is always next year, I hope!

Photo: You Otter Like This!

Sorry for the title.

These otters (there were four of them) were so entertaining this summer at Trout Lake in Yellowstone National Park. More story to come – I am hoping to have my boyfriend ‘guest blog’ for these lil guys. He was so impressed and inspired by them.

Please also vote for the featured scene for the header of my blog! I’ll tally the votes next Monday.

Photo of the Day – River Otter

Trout Lake, Yellowstone. The elusive river otter finally showed it’s face when I was there last summer, and he brought some friends! I camped out a few days to try to catch a glimpse of the now rare river otter attempting a comeback in Trout Lake.

Then on the last day of my attempt to find them, this little guy popped his head out of the water to say hello (or goodbye?).

What better backdrop could I have for this?
