After getting life and work caught back up to normal speed after my road trip, I’ve finally been able to get out a bit more and shoot. Yesterday turned out to be a great day for it, as I joined a friend in shooting some otters right here in town. They had all but vanished by the time I had gotten there, but they eventually made their way back into close proximity, and while they were cautious of us here and there, they didn’t seem to be bothered by our presence since we didn’t pose any kind of threat. We were able to watch them find a secluded spot hidden in the grass from predators as they cleaned themselves and each other up before settling down for a nap, which we took as our cue to get out of the frigid weather and thaw out.
