Otters and Trout Lake

Barrett and I went to Trout lake in hopes of photographing an otter who lives there. We spent our time waiting by watching the fish who were spawning as they tried swimming up the small stream that feeds into the lake! We sat alongside the lake as fisherman tried their luck, a buffalo grazed close by, and I dabbled with my watercolors for a bit. But as soon a the otter came out, it was fun to see Barrett go to work! He jumped up with his camera as the otter dove through the water and chased the fish in the shallow waters. Eventually he caught one and drug it to the other side of the lake where he munched happily on it. :) That was probably one of the neatest things I've seen! It was also nice that we saw 5 wolves and 5 bears on the way there and back :)


  1. I'm liking his Nikon! I bet you feel really cool out there with your camera and his, huh?!

  2. Haha I feel silly because I have my iPhone, and he has his camera right next to me :)
