I found these guys very tricky to capture well, particularly in the water where their subtle colours blend with the murky water. Nevertheless I did get a lot of reasonable shots of these incredibly endearing creatures at The British Wildlife Centre doing what they do best - being very, very lively.
The feed that you can see in several of these shots, fish heads, chicks and goat, had an obvious aphrodisiac effect as we lost them at the end of the session to doing what comes naturally out of camera range. Lets hope for babies as a result.
I just had to choose the fish head chomping action for the opening shot - just look at those teeth and whiskers! Please bear with all 14 shots and tell me which ones you like best. V14 includes a well known EPZ-er. See if you recognise her.
Thank you for looking and I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed taking them.
