The last two days we had noticed one mother and child pair of otters that were especially comfortable around us. For the most part they paid us no attention, except for the occasional visit when the young otter would put its paws on my boat and peak inside. I decided I was going to spend most of my morning with them if they were in their usual area...The otters swam around, diving for food constantly. They are voracious eating machines. There were times they came up within feet of my kayak allowing me to take many close up images.
