Mountain Royalty by DeeOtter
Mountain Royalty
Pika!
I'm kind of amazed that there are still pikas up near the waterfall. There's quite a bit of construction going on at the parking lot (expansion for recreation purposes) and there's evidence of people getting into their rock piles (there's a bunch of random rocks stacked up on one another). But the pikas have been persisting. There was even a territorial squabble (very difficult to catch on video or photo)

Please don't save my images you find on here to your computer, crop out my signature/watermark, and then re-post it to another website.
That is one of the most disrespectful things  you could possibly do to an artist. I found one such image like that and I'm trying to get in contact with the original poster to see if they are the one who thinks that image is theirs. 
I try not to put my watermarks in the middle of the image, because I think that may take away from the image if all you see is my name on its face. So I try and put them in the corners. 
It's actions like this that make me not want to post images anymore because they're just going to be taken and misrepresented. 

On a brighter note, I did add a few prints to my Etsy shop. Dee Otter Shop . And if you see something that isn't listed that you would like to have as a print, send me a note and I can add it as soon as I get a break from school work (there's usually some time on the weekends as long as I'm not traveling down to visit Tracy Aviary). I'm hoping that the sales from this shop will be enough to fuel my hobby. I doubt I would make enough to make a living, so I'm trying to aim for a bit more realistic goal of supporting my hobby. Sales would go to upgrade equipment when it breaks/needs repairs/to be replaced because the camera has taken over 500,000 pictures (I'm not kidding) and is about ready to explode and would help pay for zoo admission/yearly passes to national parks and refuges and the like. I don't know what the next year is going to bring, or what is going to happen after I finish school (ideally it will be doing an internship somewhere).
 
Lastly, I hate to end on a sad note, but I got word (last week) that Pale-Recluse passed away last week. This left me in a wreck for most of the day, and a good part of the weekend last weekend. I thought this may have happened since I haven't seen any activity on here or over on the Facebooks, and he's usually making a snarky comment with most of my status updates :P. Never met him in person, but I'l gonna miss him. 
wtf, when did DA turn into facebook? 
So about a month ago I entered a photo contest courtesy of the Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge. They had a fair number of categories, birds, mammals, other animals (birds are the most common sight) sunset/sunrise, people and nature, a creative category (mostly for Photoshop edits) and a category just for grebes, because that's the most popular bird in the refuge.
I sent in my entries (bird, grebe, mammal and creative), and hopped for the best. I got them postmarked by the deadline but I was nervous that they had to be received by the deadline, not just postmarked. 
Turns out I made the deadline because I got first place in the creative category for my sequence of terns!

(The birds were made to fit on a 5x7, but these are the same birds, just squished closer together)
The USFWS National Wildlife Refuge System Facebook page shared the image to start off National Wildlife Refuge week (though they did spell my first name wrong :P that happens a lot) 
I don't think I managed to place in any other category (I submitted a skunk instead of the winter coat weasel because I thought the quality was better). There's a ceremony at the end of this week, but I don't know if I'll make it down there this weekend, but they'll also post the results to their Facebook page.

So that's a pretty awesome way to start off the week.

More shipping options!

GOOD NEWS!
Some items are available for WORLDWIDE shipping! The small clay figures and photo prints don't take up much space and they don't weigh a whole lot, so shipping doesn't cost more than what the product is worth!

Dee Otter Shop!


And if you happen to live outside of the U.S and would like to purchase an item that has a bit of weight to it/needs a larger package for shipping send me a note on ETSY and I can give you an estimate on how much the shipping will cost. 

I NEED YOUR OPINION!

So I have a small pile of prints that have already been printed and some are even matted. Do you think there would be an interest for people to purchase discounted prints? The matting isn't perfect, and the pictures may have small scratches from being stored (I only have so much wall space!). I would much rather they find a home on a wall somewhere rather than being on a shelf collecting dust. 
SO I was thinking about putting them up in the shop at a discounted price (at the very least get the price back for materials).
They will be listed under Discount Prints and they will have the images under the variety option. 

Discounts already?!?

Yep. For the grand opening month there is a coupon code that will get you 33% off your order. That code is YAYOTTER and you use it at the check out.
