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:
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).
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!
How waterproof does their fur look? Nice.
Nice whiff of a fresh trout being eaten. Yum – she sure enjoyed it!
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!
Discovered in Yellowstone National Park during a hike around Trout Lake in the early evening. There were three playful river otters putting on a nice show, and this is one of the last shots I took before they slipped into a nice relaxing sleep while basking in the evening light.
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?).
