I was walking on Larry Scott Trail in the evening when I saw two sea otters approaching shore. I noticed a worn path through the grass across the trail from where the otters were ascending the breakwater rocks. I got as close as I could before they could see me. This otter broke from the rocks but startled at my shutter click.

My main camera has been in the shop for a bit and looks to be there for a while more. Phil B., who also shoots Pentax has kindly loaned me his K20D for a bit. The lucky guy went out and bought a new K-5, which I drool over.

Anyway, I took the opportunity to use the camera and get a few macro shots of K’s flowers. This is a gerbera daisy, a species that originated in South Africa. This flower bloomed in the greenhouse but got moved into the dining room where we get to see it more.
