Alaska – How cute is this?


Before we went to see the bears, we spent some time on the bay near Homer Alaska in our friend Jay’s boat.  We had the opportunity to spend some quality time with these delightful creatures – the sea otter.  I’m not sure there is a better definition of cute than a picture of an otter (okay, maybe a koala bear works also).  We saw many in singles or small groups but we never did see a “raft” (that really is the plural for otters) of otters that Jay told us were plentiful in the area.  Here’s your quota for cute for today!

“Hey, look at me – handsome, huh?”

  1. Oh so wickedly cute, Scott! The lake where I will soon be living permanently is called Otter Lake for very good reason … the only thing more adorable than your photo is watching two baby otters wrestling in the shallows, totally nonplussed by my presence

    • Cheryl – that sounds GREAT – I’m envious! May I ask where Otter Lake is?

      • Sure, Scott. 15 minutes south of Parry Sound, Ontario, adjacent to Georgian Bay in Lake Huron. My Photo Blog is full of shots from the lake … no one seems bored with those yet 🙂

      • Cheryl,
        Thanks, I had actually seen several of them before but forgot the details – in any case, I went back and enjoyed them again – a beautiful place!

    • TRS – Thanks (but other than totally blowing the shot, its really hard to take a bad picture of a sea otter in its environment…)

  6. Oh this is so adorable! Looks like he’s crossing his arms in arrogance of his cuteness and posing for you again! 🙂

    • RR- I’m not sure they could look bad no matter what they tried – but I appreciated the pose.

  7. I saw a few sea otters in the Monterey Bay Aquarium – an amazing place if you ever have the chance to go. They were incredibly adorable. It almost seemed that they were posing for the cameras.
