sea otter mums have tender hearts by Psithyrus sea otter mums have tender hearts by Psithyrus
Another year an dA, Yeahhh :). This is my very first picture of 2012. I was inspired by a very tender photo of a sea otter mom with her 1 week old pup. Suzi Eszterhas is a famous wildlife photographer who took the picture that I based this cute scene on. I hope someday to see wild sea otters in their native habitat, I am afraid there will be few left, especially if some politicians get their way in reducing restrictions on some sea otter hunts. Only sea otters should have the right to wear sea otter pelts. I placed a neat windmill farm in the distance; I might write and illustrate a childrens' book that touts the ecological benefits of alternative energy sources. Please enjoy these cute fellows :) I'll upload the sketch to my scraps, I drew the sketch during my work break...

all the best and happy new year everyone,

Blair

Come to Puget Sound around Monterey, California. It's got plenty of otters, and you can see them right from the beach.

Oh dear, I just love this picture! You captured the emotion greatly and Sea Otters are just too adorable not to love. It's sad that they want to reduce their protection out of greed for money and people want to hunt them out of envy of their precious fur that helps them survive. :c I hope sea otters never disappear.
