California Sea Otter

Monterey, CA

Feeding time at the Monterey Bay Aquarium brings out the otters (and hundreds of visitors) to their exhibit.
Viewing is from the inside and photographers must content themselves shooting through steamy glass.
Still, it was fun to watch these adorable critters feed while swimming on their backs and play.

Delightful Dan!! Everyone's favourite I think. Our Sea Otters on the BC coast were literally wiped out by 1911 but a colony of them were brought to Barclay Sound from Alaska between 1969 and 1972. Today we have about 2600 of these little refugees between the north end of the island to Barclay Sound. Great shot! ~V~
