Kayaking with River Otters

This evening we took our kayaks on the river, which is still fairly high with a strong current. We paddled upstream to the wetland and there spotted a couple of river otters that wanted to play. What fun it was. We were following them and when they surfaced they seemed to almost taunt us to get close so they could smack their tails and create a real splash. I would have enjoyed getting near enough to feel the splash, but was never closer than several yards away from them. We didn't have a camera and even if we had would not have been able to get a good pic. This one I found on the Internet.
