'You otter see what we saw!'

Lonnie Boyer caught these playful otters on camera while fishing at camp last summer. There seem to be more otters than ever these days and quite a few of our fishermen see them. Getting close enough for photos like these, however, is a different matter.
These playful animals are also very curious and will often raise their bodies way out of the water to get a better look at you.
A group of otters in the water is called a raft. On land they are called a romp.

How do you keep coming up with these fantastic photos, Lonnie? Really. For instance, what type of camera do you use? It must have a super zoom or telephoto lens. I think a lot of people are afraid to take their "good camera" out fishing with them since they might get caught in the rain, etc. How do you protect yours?

Thanks Dan. I love taking pictures, so I am glad you enjoy them. We take a Rubbermaid type tub with lid out on the boat and put all of our rain gear, lake maps, binoculars, camera and anything else we don't want to get wet. We've been caught in many rains up there and haven't lost anything yet that was in the tub!! The camera I use is a Nikon Coolpix S7000 16MP Digital Camera with 20x Optical. I've had it for about 3 yrs. Previous camera was also a Coolpix. Nothing fancy, no special lens.
