Another image from my trip to lsle of Mull. Aug 20. While watching the Otter sleeping in this remote area a car passed by me (100 yards behind me). The Otter lifted its head and followed the car until it was out of sight, then returned to sleep. I had about 20mins with the Otter but most of the time it was curled up with its head tucked in. Eventually it slipped back into the sea loch and disappeared.

Many thanks for your votes, comments and user awards, all appreciated.

Have a good day, overcast up hear with a possibility of snow/rain this afternoon.

Stay Safe, Bill

Stellar moment Bill ...great timing all around .
I remember watching a bunch of sea otters surfing in big waves in Monterey California last February ...
Could have stayed there all day and watched them.
