“I’ve noticed this trend in my photography where I have a deficiency of images that are easily photographed locally,” writes Photographer Donald Quintana. “A perfect example of a subject that I should have a huge image library of is our local sea otters. They are listed as endangered by the ICUN and one would think I’d be spending a huge amount of time capturing photos of them. But, and I’m embarrassed to say this, I only have a handful of sea otter images that I’m proud of. So I’m going to try for the next few weeks to shoot those animals that present themselves as willing and abundant.”

This photo seems like a great start!
