Sea Otter Resting in the Elkhorn Slough


This sea otter was photographed from a boat on the Elkhorn Slough in Moss Landing, California.  Sea otters must eat up to a quarter of their weight every day, such that they spend a lot of time resting between meals to conserve energy.  The afternoon light on this sea otter’s face and the very blue water make this photo more interesting.

Technical details:  Canon 7D, Canon 100-400L, ISO 400, f 6.3, 1/1250 sec.
