One was a local photographer/climber, one was a face that seemed familiar from photos but whose name I couldn't be sure of, and Will.

Some happy otters munching away on crabs 15' from the edge of the Stanley Park Seawall today!

It seemed a tad brisk even in the pm sun for the traverse, so a little mtn biking was in order -this shot partway though a road up/trail down circuit on the slopes below cypress bowl ski area -the traverse is on the water behind the camera; our home town

Good, gf. We need establishing shots, too.


Whatever they are?

edit:

An establishing shot in filmmaking and television production sets up, or establishes the context for a scene by showing the relationship between its important figures and objects. It is generally a long- or extreme-long shot at the beginning of a scene indicating where, and sometimes when, the remainder of the scene takes place.


Well. Maybe it is a little late in the thread for the establishing shot. Still a good picture of our environs, today.

Apologies for the crappy otter pic. I felt like having the moment for a brain memory rather than an eternal photo representation.

There were 3 of them, 1 larger than the other 2. They played and hunted in a team and were obviously enjoying the bounty and nice conditions in the Sun.

There was a crowd of around 50 people enjoying the otters. I said, Otters ! to the Chinese tourist family who mixed "beaver" into their dialect. OTTERS ! they replied, happy with the correction.

Time stood still while visitors from many countries, skateboarders, urban metal faced youths, old queens and everyone else just enjoyed the good things the Earth offers with otters on a sunny winter day.

I was soloing around at Copper Cove once when I heard some noises, yipping or like that, coming from by the water.

Peeked over an overhang just above the tide line to see Mama Otter and her brood, four of them.

Mama had a big ling cod, like a 15-pounder.

Well, the otters' jaws went snicker-snack and that ling cod was gone in like, 5 bites, man. Max.

I always scan for otters, among other things. Though I haven't managed to be out there when orcas are spy-hopping, I did see The Creature from the Black Lagoon going by.










The rare times I'm not out there will be covered by these babies.

...and some just clap their hands, or paws, or whatever they got, now


...and the otter hasn't got much to say








Thanks, Greg.

I'll bet it was dreamy on the pm of the 1st Andy -we made it out last night under cloudy skies, but it was still pleasant enough to watch the light fade while enjoying a quality beer on the rocks post grip squeezing.
