Is it safe ?

The Otter at Waterhead, peering out between the struts, deciding whether he is safe, with us sitting on the deck above pointing cameras at him, an hour later he was perfectly happy!

    love this otter series, Linda--amazing light and textures in the water and on his lovely face and fur!

    Hi Linda, saw this photo mentioned on twitter today by a couple of folks. You probably got a few views of it from that.
  • lakeslover2010 PRO 5y

    Yes Colin
    Lakeshotels made it a favourite and put it on Twitter, most views today are from other sites who have grabbed it ( hence I have linked to redbubble!!)

    My sister lives just behind here so I will certainly find a quiet late afternoon to see if I can spot these delightful creatures.
    A wonderful shot - well caught.
