Otter Here

 

Like a group of "ladies who lunch” and get just that wee bit “tiddly”, Sea Otters gather together in  "rafts", dressing up appropriately draped in seaweed so they don't float away, they groom, chat, doze and feed the babies.   Ladies coo and males grunt when content. So human in their behaviour, they are one of the few mammalian tool users.  An important Keystone species, hunted for their thick fur almost to extinction, they are now protected yet still endangered.

 

With grateful thanks to the wonderful wildlife photographer Marc Latremouille.

 

Hope you like them, have been planning this for a while, and I’m very pleased with the characters.
