Otter Point photos

Dan writes:

I just brought in a camera from a new location, which I'm calling Otter
Point. A group of at least three otters haul out here to roll around
and drop telltale piles of fish scale scat. The camera captured otter
activity here on two consecutive nights, at 10PM, and (surprising to me)
at 5:30PM. The photos here were taken prior to setting the clocks back,
so if you're out roaming a wetland edge just before dusk, you've got a
chance to see otters.


  1. Interesting. A mother still with her young of last spring, or a "gang" of males? Social behavior of river otters is not well understood.

  2. Very, very nice, Dan. I'll bet you were excited to have captured these guys on film.
