...I started down river early, doing my morning Facebook Live session. If you don’t follow my private page on Facebook, Lewis Kemper, you may not get notices when I go live. Every morning I go out kayaking I start off with a 5-15 minutes ride down the river live on Facebook. There wasn’t a lot to share that morning, but near the end I observed a lone otter swimming upstream. I mentioned that I could not possibly follow it since I was paddling with one hand while holding the phone for the Facebook Live in my other hand. It seemed like it was going to be a low yield day.
...I noticed some movement on a log up ahead and saw it was the single otter hauling a salmon up on the log for breakfast. Fortunately for me the log is at a spot in the river that is like a small bay with very little current. I was able to make some great pictures and shoot some nice video during the 35 minutes I spent watching...As I photographed the light came out from behind the clouds and made some great backlit images. Turned out to be a nice day after all!
