Yesterday, I hid behind the bushes & took some photos of these otters. They had just returned to shore after swimming in a small pond in Naples, Florida.

Thank you. I used the NIK sharpness app here and I think it helped.

I whistled and made clucking noises with my mouth while still hiding behind a bush. This is what attracted their attention in the first photo and got them "looking at me."

works great for some critters but it will put the run on some and they will not even look back.

I have tried that a few times with birds and it either had no affect or else made them decide to fly away. But, otters seem to be a curious kind of animal. I also have noticed that there are almost always two of them swimming together in their hunt for edible fish. They seldom appear alone or in larger groups, at least in the pond where I see them from time to time.

I'm guessing litter mates.. I've seen up to five together. don't try it with fox kits... their off like a shot. Otter's are just plain curious.. very cool
