I finally managed to get my big lens on the river otters.  I got to watch them frolick and relax in the sunshine for over an hour, it was pretty neat. The light was aweful - try shooting a dark animal on sunlit reflective snow with a slight backlight. Brutal. But at least I broke the jinx and finally got some shots of them. Now I need to get them in better light sometime... [simage=859,max,n,center,]
