Moss Landing Southern Sea Otters–02

Photograph of a Southern Sea Otter, Enhydra lutris nereis, at Moss Landing, CaliforniaAll of these photographs of otters were taken with an old 500 mm f/8 mirror reflex lens. It is a manual focus lens and very hard to control. The depth of field is narrow and I can only hold it steady with a tripod. The otters are often rolling or diving so it is rare to get a shot in focus. Sometimes, though, when they are feeding, a successful shot happens.
