First time I have caught Otters at Loxahatchee out of the water. One was snooping inside a shack that is set up as a blind for Bird Watchers and Photographers.

Nice shots of these fun critters. Here in Pa the chances of seeing a river otter in the wild is slim to none. They have been working hard to reestablish the population. It is working. So maybe I will get lucky someday. They are also working on reestablishing the fisher population. I will attach a photo of the river otter I had the fortune of seeing yesterday at the Lehigh County game preserve. It's not like seeing them in nature but they always put a smile on my face when I see them. Thanks for posting your catch!

Very cool shots; nice job of taking advantage of what had to be an unexpected bonus to the day.

How cool! I've only seen them in captivity and they are so much fun to watch. They always look like they are having so much fun.
