I took these photos of a pair of yearling marmots in late May. I caught them as they were engaged in an intense wrestling match. It was so much fun to watch.
Photos were taken in low light.
I was walking on the beach near sheep creek and happened to spot a beaver trying to swim up the creek. It was low tide so there was not much water in the creek. I am not sure what it was doing in such a shallow creek that is so close to the ocean. I was quite surprised.
We also spotted a sea otter near point retreat while we were out on our boat. We have never seen sea otters so close to Juneau.
I had a mink run right by me as I was walking on a beach. I was quite surprised by how close it got to me.
I found two different river otters on two different occasions. I've been hoping to get a few decent photos of river otters.
There is a pond that I frequently visit hoping to find birds. I noticed last fall that there appeared to be a beaver in the area. Today I was lucky enough to catch a glimpse of it. I do not get to see beavers very often, so it was neat to see him/her.
It has been pretty slow around here this winter as far as birds and wildlife go. It will be nice when spring arrives.
