River Otters are the most playful, energetic and charismatic animals I’ve ever photographed. I was lucky enough to spend a couple of days with this family of otters at Yellowstone’s Trout Lake in the northeast corner of the park.
The reason otters are found at Trout Lake is because of spawning Cutthroat Trout. The fish must travel in into the shallow tributary to spawn but that makes them easy for the otters to catch.
