River Otters at Brazos Bend

We have been out to Brazos Bend State Park in Needville so many times over the last almost 40 years.

Last Friday our daughter Jeanelle and her 4 kids and I went out there for a bike ride. The weather was beautiful.

We saw about 20 alligators, I have no idea how many different birds.

For the first time ever we saw a family of river otters. I was able to grab a few pictures of these cuties.

We think it was a  mom and two babies. As you can see in the second picture the larger one has a wound on its back. From what I have read these little boogers can stand their ground with an alligator.

Keep your eyes, wide open and nature will always surprise you with something you may not have seen before. If you are lucky you might just get a picture of it.
