Re: A close encounter of the otter kind

I thoroughly enjoyed this set too. It is always wonderful to have a close encounter with a wild animal, and in this case, such a cute one.
I share your concern that the otter will stay safe in it's trusting contact with humans.
Your final photo is a real gem of a shot.

Maybe you should send these to Autumnwatch?

Re: A close encounter of the otter kind

Fantastic set of images the last one is especially good. When I was on the Hebrides recently I saw a few but they were to far for me to take photographs of even with my 35-100mm lens. I am particular envious

Re: A close encounter of the otter kind

What a wonderful story and fantastic images. Tame otters are not unknown in your neck of the woods with the Gavin Maxwell connection. My wife, who comes from Port William tells me that he used to be seen walking his otters when he was staying with his grandparents at Monreith House. She is not old enough to have witnessed this first hand but someone told her the story. The only otter I have ever got close to is the metal one at St Medan Golf Course!
