I took this series of photos the other day. Bit of a rare occurrence seeing one of these in the wild having its lunch. The interaction of the youngster and mom was interesting. Mom definitely dominated the feeding, with junior getting the odd bite. As you see later, mom got quite defensive protecting its catch, but as most mothers do, gives in to junior. It's a lengthy post, so I just inserted the link from the wildlife forum

They are interesting, well worth looking at. Mom's are quite disciplinarians, aren't they?

Great story and shots, I have always loved otters after seeing "Ring of Bright Water".

Thanks everyone. It was a special treat to see this happen. Been chasing animals for quite a few years, and never seen this before...cheers....Don

Very nice series, Don. I love otters. That's one of my signons online. Never seen any except in Monterey, California. There's supposed to be one in a pond of a friend nearby here, but I have yet to see it.

I wonder why she wouldn't let him eat? Anyone know?

I loved these pics. Otters are so much fun to watch. We live near the water and have had the odd opportunity to see them playing.
