March 9

The otters showed up again today!  Finally! I was starting to think they weren't coming back!  This is out at the Yolo Basin Wildlife Area, and the pond gets stocked with trout for a festival in February.  After the festival the otters show up for dinner.  There were four of them there today.  Many good shots to choose from, but overall I really liked this one.  The expression comes with a snort.  They're curious and come up kind of close, then they stick their heads way out of the water and snort at you.  I like that the tail is out too so it gives an idea of their size.  Plus the reflection is just how I like it.  Happy day!
