River Otters - still there!







I went back again this morning, hopeful that the otters would be there, and indeed they were. The light was a bit better than last night (although still overcast). At one point the curious otters swam almost right up to me. The vertial portait above is full-frame, the others (2 otters in frame) I cropped a bit. 500/4IS; 1.4x; Rebel XTi; ISO 400
Photographing otters is a great way to start a day!

  1. The ice certainly makes it a unique shot.

    D300s are out - perfect opportunity to switch. New 400, 500 and 600 VRIIs as well.

  4. Thanks for the kind words Sharleen, Eric and Markus - I was ecstatic to get these photos.

    Eric, I've got so much invested in my Canon system, and I love the stuff. Switching to Nikon would be financially crazy and unecessary.
