[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
These otters were for me the stars of yellowstone. I saw them several times. At one time two of the young ones got out of the water4 meters away from me and started investigating what I was doing. When the parents surfaced they chirped a bit and called their young ones to safety in the water, this is the look they gave me when swimming away. I'm glad my camera was on the tripod because my heart was pounding of this close encounter.
