Back to Nanaimo River flats today to see if I could get any better photos of the Short Eared Owl. Took around 100 photos all of which went directly into the bit bucket but on the way home I came across this critter playing in the center of the river. I haven't seen a sea otter this close up since I was steelhead fishing back in the early '70s. Not a lot of fish in the river at this time of year so I wonder what brought him this far up river. Like me .... curiosity?
