Well done Mark. More than acceptable results under very tricky conditions by the look of it. Nice.

Mark

Lovely to see some real, wild activity shots. And interesting activity too. All of mine have been captive animals. Any wild otters I have seen have been at distance and pictures are just a record. So really well done.

Re: Official: I am an Otter Spotter

FWIW, the first photo was taken at about 15+ metres. Stems of plants made focus tricky, but I think OK. The last photo was take at maybe 40 metres, and again the plant life had to be overcome for focus. Day was quite cloudy but clear. ISO went up to 1000 for most of the photos, so did OK on that.

Aperture priority, and Auto ISO. Panasonic 100-400mm lens used, set to 365mm or so. Photo position was slightly uncomfortable, through a "window" in a wood screen.

Otter was aware of me, but was kind...…...Some 300 photos taken in all. Used the high sequential electronic shutter, limited to 8 photos per take. Got round to realising single photos worked just a well.Processing on LR6,
