River Otter With A Little Food
by Alan Estep (ClickinAL) 
Canon EOS 40-D
Seattle, Washington
United States of America

Photographer Notes:
I waited and watched this time for about 2 hours before I managed to capture this pregnant female river otter coming ashore and heading for her den with a partially eaten fish that she had been munching on, while waiting for me to go away.
