There were four otters swimming in the river. They were diving down and would come up eating blue crabs. The four of them seemed to come up successful with a new crab almost every dive. They ate the crabs whole; you could hear them crunching from far away. These two swam towards a palm tree that was in the water and took their time enjoying their meals. They eventually got out and ran around in the woods alongside the river before hopping back in the water for more
Chassahowitzka River, a spring-fed river near the gulf. These were not too far from where the Gulf water mingles with the fresh water so I think it was brackish where I photographed these otters (explaining the blue crabs' presence).
