early morning pictures at the coast guard jetty usually means i might catch some otters. I watched this one for awhile as it was farther away and was hoping that they would come over to the jetty. And sure enough they did. I was almost running at some points trying to stay ahead of her to get the best lighting and that was a funny sight, let me tell you. Liberty would just get settled down and i would be saying come on girl and off we would go. This Mom was not feeding, just passing through, so she was moving constantly.
The hug is actually the Mom trying to get a grasp on the baby to keep pulling it down along the side of the jetty. Cute baby and good Mom.
