Sea otter
Photographer: Dawn Wilson
Location: Homer, Alaska
Story: 
As I was out looking for eagles to photograph in the beautiful evening sunlight in Homer, Alaska, I found two sea otters swimming around in the Homer Marina. As I watched them I realized they were cleaning themselves in preparation for bed. After about an hour of washing, licking, swimming and snuggling, they finally fell asleep floating on their backs near each other.
