Lontra canadensis, 30 April 2020

Lontra canadensis, the North American river otter;
Volusia county, Florida (30 April 2020).

River otters aren’t the easiest to photograph in my neck of the woods. When I come across them, they’re typically swimming about dark tannic waters bathed in dark canopied shadows. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a River otter simply stop and look at me. In a sense, they always seem to show off. They’ll dart and swim about, roll in circles and loops, frothing and dashing their way through the water. Active little heathens!
