Feb 22, 2009: Ottercam

Talk about an unexpected photo op...

Quote:
on Feb. 3, the San Francisco-based freelancer found himself on the other end of the lens -- with an otter at the viewfinder.

and people try to stop litter from getting into the ocean, look how much enjoyment it gives to the animals! :p
Quote:
The screen on Aguirre's digital camera soon confirmed what he'd seen: an otter floating on its back, video camera grasped in its paws, lens aimed at the boat of excited photographers. The humans had a bad angle, but Aguirre managed to snap a single clear shot before the otter dived, video camera in tow... Judging by the rust and seaweed adorning the camera, the otter probably wasn't getting much good footage.
Every other photo session might just seem too boring...
Quote:
"I know I can go down there another million times and I will never see another otter with a video camera," Aguirre said. "I think I have more chance of a penguin coming up to me and actually speaking English."
The otter never resurfaced, leaving the photographers to speculate on the make and model of the animal's gear.
The article title was cute, "you otter be in pictures."
You can read the whole story at the Santa Cruz Sentinel

Excellent Leokins, thank you.

And the otter did not max out any credit cards getting the camera, which makes them smarter than humans.



SPUCK  Sunday Feb 22 05:45 AM

Dang! Why didn't I put this up?? <slap wrist>
I live in Santa Cruz and read that the morning it came out...



Griff  Sunday Feb 22 09:11 AM

Great find Leokins!



Trilby  Sunday Feb 22 09:28 AM

I'm glad that that particular otter found the camera.

He has the soft eyes of a true artist.

So, Jacques Cousteau has reincarnated as an otter. Great choice there, Mr. C!

Quite right too. The closest landmass is Atgentina. It would be speaking Spanish.


Clodfobble  Sunday Feb 22 02:34 PM

But it would be Argentinian Spanish, so it would have an adorable little lisp.



ZenGum  Sunday Feb 22 08:35 PM

He stole that camera from the skate.

According to my children I walk like a penguin lately, and Daryl told me I looked like one when I was wearing a white top with black pants the other day...and I speak english.

I have a video camera too.

Uh, that's Santa Cruz California, but your right about the spanish.


Gravdigr  Monday Feb 23 06:00 PM

When watching penguins on TV, in my warped little mind all penguins speak French. I do not know why.
