California Sea Otters

Sammy the Sea Otter lives in Moss Beach, California.  I've been photographing him for 5 years now.  He's had
several wives during this time and a friend of mine even saw one of them giving birth there.

For those wanting to know how I took these photos - it was with a long lens and a *lot* of time and patience.

These photos are available as 5" by 7" greeting cards:
   $2 each wholesale (add 8 percent tax for retail)  plus S&H
