Michael Reinhart was watching an Osprey eating a fish when he was startled to see this River Otter climbing up the bluff.
River Otters are fascinating creatures. A family of otters lives in the lagoon of the Gualala River. Below is a photo by Gary Hopkins of a River Otter and a Western Gull facing off. That gull should have been worried, as River Otters will take a gull for their dinner.Thanks to Michael and Gary for allowing me to share their photos with you here.
