These are two different Otters. V1 is a parent (the female I believe) and I managed to get a few glimpses of their three cubs. The shots I did get of her with the cubs aren't quite upto scratch so I might post them but maybe not. I hope you like these as much I loved taking them.
Workload (working all weekend) and time restrictions are not allowing me enough time to stay on here and leave comments but I will make time to vote. Forgive me if I miss some.
I hope you all have a lovely week.
Steve.
