I spent a couple of hours at the Otter and Owl Centre near Lyndhurst in Hampshire this morning.

The Otters were in fine form and I got some excellent (if rather pornographic!) shots of the Malaysian 3-toed adolescents at play

This one was shot indoors through glass and I was trying to get the feel of the animal in its natural surroundings (I had in mind a Jungle pool). It was playing with something off the bottom of the pool which is why the paws are in motion.

Not the sharpest shot of the day but one I hope you will enjoy for the content and composition

Camera:Canon EOS 40D
Lens:Canon 70-200 f4 L IS USM, 1/50th sec with f5, + 1/3rd stop over exposure and 180mm focal length
Recording media:RAW (digital)

I like the movement of the paws - it looks like the otter is clapping!
