Otter Encounters

During our stay on Mull, we spent some time looking for Otters.

We managed a few encounters, mostly at a distance however, one particular dog Otter seemed determined to have a good look at the camera, I could only just get him in the frame.

All images taken with E-M1 II, 300mm Pro and MC-14.

Re: Otter Encounters

Nice to see one up that close. They can be very inquisitive when the mood takes them.

I couldn't believe it when he started to walk towards me, I didn't think he was going to stop.

I was crouched behind a rock so I suspect it was the camera and lens he was looking at, he just stopped, looked and then carried on hunting.

Thanks to all for the likes and comments.

Re: Otter Encounters

A great set of an animal that is not easy to photograph.

Thank you, they really do reflect the light when wet, at times the camera struggled to lock onto them.
