I need a break from tales of doom, so I offer you, for this Endangered Species Thursday, the sea otters I photographed on Saturday before our pellet adventure. I got no marketable images of these guys, but I didn't spend very long photographing them. I did, however, get more used to how they act and the things they do, which will make photographing them easier every time. Here are some of the "outtakes."
Sea otters are, of course, endangered. This organization has a wealth of information.
