An enchanting image, Sylvia, his eyes are wide open in amazement at all the ice on his normally 'liquid' bath! Carol

I wonder how the pair are getting on in the snow now? and I am amazed to see the ice there, what a capture Sylvia, so different and a one off I would imagine. wonderful shot.
Thanks for the Mod really has done wonders to the image, but am thinking I may have to actually saw off the branch for future shots!

This is brilliant ( of course!!! ) Sylvia. Great exposure and how unusual to see the otter on the ice. Spot on.
Missed you today- damn cold and your funny stories would have helped at times.

Thank you Ron Smile - really wanted to join you but was being wimpish - it was just sooo cccccold outside! Did penance by starting to put the Xmas decorations up at home (one of my most unfavourite jobs!)
