Due to the low light levels the otters were quite difficult to get a decent photograph of, as increasing the ISO decreases the image quality, so the original images shows signs of movement (due to the slowish shutter speend) and even poor focussing, totally of my own doing of course.

I decided to crop the image to show the sharpest part of the otter, which was its head. The final image was not exactly what I had in mind but I think it works. What do you think?

All comments and votes very welcome indeed.

Thank you for all your votes on my pygmy marmoset (well worth a look if you haven't seen it!)
