Got my eye on the ball

By FeatherFriend
This little Otter did a perfect catch every time the keeper threw a meatball into the enclosure. Here he is, hands poised to do the catch for which he got a terrific round of applause. Extremely entertaining to watch and enjoy the activity.

Many thanks for the votes and comments on the previous image,

What fun to watch the antics and dexterity of this otter, playing to the gallery it would seem: and such a fine capture, expertly timed to include the flying meat ball.

A superbly timed shot Geoff, I think this otter could expect a call up to the England cricket team given their apalling fielding and catching lately!BlushGrin
