    Thanks Mike! We are always looking for more otter images (you may have noticed some recycled photos if you read this blog frequently…). We will gladly use your images–with full credit of course.

    Thanks again for your offer, and for helping further the cause.

    An Otter story:

    A few years ago, my dad was coming back from one of his fishing trips off the coast of Washington, when he saw something that caught his eye. He was watching some otters floating on their backs when some flashes of light caught his eye. He borrowed the Captain’s binoculars, and began to watch one otter in particular. It seems that this one was crushing his abalone in an entirely new manner. Instead of using a rock, this otter was using a very shiny object, and upon further invetigation, my father realized that the otter was using a flask. Guess he or she wanted a drink with their dinner!
    Otters: Magpies of the Sea.

    Just wanted to share this delightful otter story with you….. It made my day when he told me about what he had just seen.
