Elkhorn Slough, Monterey Bay, California
We think of Sea Otters as cute and cuddly creatures that we just want to go up to and hug. Though this may not be the best idea, this photograph of the Sea Otter (Enhydra lutris) really enforces the idea that they are charming animals. I love how happy he looks, even if that is anthropomorphizing the animal.
Basic color and contrast adjustment, as well as removal of dust.
