As I was walking down the trail I saw a head pop up in the creek.
All of a sudden 3 more heads pop up past me. They were heading the other way.
I turned around and headed that way also. I walked along the bank of the creek and every other minute a head would pop up. One of them looked right at me.
They started climbing up on the rocks in front of me.
They seemed curious as to who I was. I backed up to get this picture in and I did not want them to get too close.
I was taking pictures right into the sun so it was not ideal but they were so cute.
What a face!
They stayed on the rocks for a few minutes looking around and then all 4 of them slid back into the water and headed down the creek. The end of the creek was close by and they went into the tunnel under the street.
I was pretty excited to see them at Largo Nature Preserve. There’s not much there at this small park but I had heard several times that otters had been sighted there. I went totally not expecting to see them and there they were. Swimming right beside me on the trail in the first 30 minutes I was there. They came and went fast though. I’ll be back to see them again.
