Eye to Eye

eye to eye

This River Otter was photographed from a flat bottom boat at fairly close range. Make no mistake. These are not the cuddly sea otters we see floating on their backs while cracking open shellfish. These are hunters more like leopards than their easy going sea brethren. They are ill tempered, no nonsense, four or five feet long and would take your hand off (or at least a few fingers) if you ventured too close or threatened them. This one spotted us and swam directly at our boat with no hesitation. We’re not on its menu and the three of us in the boat presented a large body, bigger than it would be interested in. When we continued to float along non-threateningly it gave us the evil eye, continued on with its business and vanished.
