Hey Don, great series. There are cute aren't they? And darn hard to get good pictures of.:lol: I have about a dozen shots of various parts of their backs, butts, and ripples in the water where they were a second ago. You got real nice opportunity and took good advantage.
Nice work,
Steve

Hi Don,

I just want to say, I love your otter picture series. These are so cool. I can't believe he/she let you stay and take pictures so long and to trust you so much as to take a nap to top it off. Amazing and beautiful.

Thank you for sharing these with us,

Teree

Thanks everyone. It was a treat to see this little guy. But I found out from a friend of mine that it's not an otter but a mink. I googled otters, and found out that this is probably most likely a mink. The nose is wrong to be an otter. Apparently they have black noses, not pink ones, and also the markings on the front are wrong. Live and learn....Don

i thought it looked a bit odd for an otter, even a young one... either way, great series! i've never seen a mink in the wild, and otters only at a distance in the water... wish i could get closer!!

Thanks VP, Rocky. Yes, it was a rare sighting for sure. First I've ever had of a mink (now that I know what it is). It was very trusting, or maybe just plain too tired to run away.....cheers......Don.
