Most. Adorable. Story. Ever. Enrique Aguirre, a San Francisco-based wildlife photographer, was out on Monterey Bay on a picture taking safari when he caught this otter turning the tables on him. Yep, that would be a video camera in the otter’s paws, aimed directly at Aguirre. The incredulous photographer – the human one, I mean – thinks the camcorder probably fell out of a kayaker’s hands at some point, and was scooped up by the little sea creature. But the otter dove before Aguirre or any of his fellow photogs could stop and ask him the make and model. We’re hoping the otter posts his footage on YouTube.
