Fraser River Otter




This looks like a beaver, not an otter.

If you're ever in doubt as to where the sun is shining into your house, simply find your cat :)  THEY always find the one little bit of sun.

Excellent photographs everyone.  I would tend to agree with Marmot that Eagleeye's photo is of a beaver and not an otter though, admittedly, identifying aquatic mammals is not my forte.

Reason for edit: Couldn't seem to figure out how to attach my own photographs.

I had no idea there were beavers in Richmond until this morning I pulled into my spot to fish and he/she must have been resting on the shore when I heard the tail splash and he took off.  I lived in Richmond for 15years never saw a beaver.  Otter, Muskrat sure.  Didn't even know beavers could handle salty water.  Unfortunately my zoom is not so good.

Wish I had a better zoom

Fox at 12,000 feet

Last weekend, I had a chance to go up Pike’s Peak in Colorado (DROVE UP). It was beautiful. At mile 13 of 16 they had the road closed due to the high snow on the road still. Mile 13 had us up at 12,500 feet! I could handle a slow walk up there, but much else resulted in some serious gasping. Yikes!
 
On the road on the way up, we ran across the cutest little fox that seemed to possibly be too tame for his own good… Here are a few shots of the critter:

Wonderful pics again!!!!!

I love the 4th....great DOF on it.  The third is neat too... you get a real sense of the wind.

If you've seen "the fantastic mr fox", this fox looks a lot like the female lead :)

Thanks Marmot <blush>

This little guy really was a great model... almost too friendly.  kept coming closer than the minimum focal length of the lens :)

You have to wonder how many chances in life you'll get to have an experience like that, hey?  My brother and I were turkey hunting two years back and had a female turkey follow us around like a dog for a few hours...she'd run when we ran, sit when we sat, often within a few feet from us.  Made for some great pictures, but also made us worried for such a friendly bird come fall when the season opened for all turkeys and not just the males.

cheers.
