A family of otters

Four otters sit clumped together staring at the camera while on a small bank of grass and trees and rock between arms of the green river.

As spring rolls around, returning to my rivers to collect more samples and data has been constantly on my mind. I never knew I could form such a deep bond to waterbodies, but I find something so magical about rivers, especially salmon spawning rivers that support so much life.

Here is a family of otters that I became very familiar with during the fall spawning season. It was amazing watching the family work together to catch salmon that were often bigger than they were. I am stoked to get back into the field and reconnect with this amazing ecosystem.
