North American river otter taken on the Georgia Strait foreshore near Gibsons, on the Sunshine Coast, British Columbia, Canada.
Wild river otters are understandably much more wary and alert than those found in zoos and game parks, particularly when alone, as here.
Not sure why he (she?) chose such a small rock to haul himself up on. It was also the closest to me, which I found interesting, as he was well aware I was there.
