Photo Phriday – Sea Koalas~

Okay, who doesn’t like sea otters. They don’t look it but they are quite fierce animals.

and don’t sweat the small stuff!

This pup is clearly embracing the parental philosophy.

Cheers to you from Moro Bay California’s wild sea otters~

Photo Phriday – Spring

I know it’s spring when the calves show up on my way to town. Their coats a so clean and shiny. I have never seen one being born, but hopefully one of these springs. They don’t like strangers, so when I got close to the fence, this one hid behind his mother. Then he decided he (or she) was hungry.

The group shot was from a different day. They’ve gotten a bit bigger.
