I bookmarked this photo a while ago and return for another look whenever I need to be cheered up. The energy and intensity of this lovely creature is inspiring. Thanks to Mark Bridger for getting, and sharing, the shot.
Such a picture as shown above makes us feel that we have lot to explore than our everyday work. Also it gives us glimpse of things maybe we won't ever have seen on our own. Thanks Mark Bridger from bottom of my heart for the shot.
I love it! Great shot. Otters are by far my favourite of the sea mammals. Their playfulness and dedication to their offspring are their two best traits.
If anyone is in Dublin, Ireland, over the next few weeks you can see this photo, and many other wonderful shots, at the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Exhibition in the CHQ Building in the IFSC.
Anyone who loves otters will love my 2012 book on searching for and finding wild otters all over the UK! 'Otter Country' was published by GRANTA.. sorry for the self publicity but the book is pure otter joy..
@Eoin Bairéad Thanks! I am and I shall!
@Leanne Costa Me too, and then I wrote a book about it - see my 'Otter Country' you'll love it.
