Got lucky at Point Lobos State Park the other day and happened upon this mother with her day old twins. Less than 2% of Pacific Sea Otters have twins. Usually one is abandoned and dies as they cannot tend to two. Monterey Bay Aquarium was notified but would not believe it was a twin birth until the docent sent photos. None had been reported in over 30 years.
Canon 70d with Sigma 18 - 250 at 250mm, f8, 1/400, iso 1600. Shot in deep shade, hand held. Cropped and touched up in LR.
Wow ... hope they are able to keep both alive.
Good shot and story, Tom! Hope they both survive!
