When The Hike Turns Into A Great Hike
A couple of weeks ago while hiking out at Prophetstown I kept telling myself that the hike was just informational. I really had not seen anything in good light during the entire hike. I did gain some insight into where the river otters are hanging out, and sometimes that is just as important as making the photos. I think that I now know a little better how to see them, and where to go to make sure that I do. With just a couple of okay photos I started to walk back to my car. That is when this hawk decided to give me a photo that I really liked on my way out. That photo turned an okay walk into a great walk for me.
The Otter Gets A Fish
Most of the otters were down far out of range for photography while I was watching them. One otter though swam closer and closer to me before disappearing. After a few minutes of thinking that I lost it the otter popped up pretty close to me with a fish in its mouth. There is too much clutter here for a good picture, but this was a cool experience to see the otters up close again.
