For those who asked, the shots of the otter were all taken with the 70-300 mm lens at F8, 400 ISO at 300 mm. The blowups are all 100 percent, so the shots are solid and not falling apart. At 200 percent they're too noisy or grainy, but just. I was lucky as the snow was bright enough to permit an ISO of 400. At 800 ISO the photos would be grainier, and the blow up size would be more restricted. All but one of the photos was in focus, and are in this post.
The grey background bird shots are shot at F6.3, and 800 ISO.
A post to I'd Rather Be Birding,My World Tuesday, and WBW. I've set the post up for the slide show.

The otter was at the far end of the rock island shown above.
