I spent some time looking for birds and wildlife in the Salt Lake City area. I did not see as much as I had hoped. The temperatures were in the high 90s and I found it difficult to spend much time outside.
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.
