I am loving the time change since it is light earlier and i can get in some nature before heading out for the day. Wonderful scenes like this make all the difference in a good day or a great day. i loved the snowy egret taking off across the cove. Only moments before it was standing next to the great egret making a wonderful contrast in the differences between the birds.
The picture with the swimmer shows them upsetting an otter. I watched as he had been feeding up and down the jetty and then these swimmers swam right along the jetty beside the kelp. The three otters that a had been napping and feeding swam away. This is blatant violation of the marine protection act. While in this picture, the swimmers are not facing the otter, the also spoke to the otter, so they knew it was there and did not care. With a whole ocean to swim in, i do not know why swimmers and divers for that matter want to constantly be in this location which mean almost always the otters will not be around. So sad that nobody seems to care.
