Otter portrait

By HelenMarie  
This otter was looking up from drinking fresh water having just come out of the sea. He just happened to look up directly in my direction to where I was hiding then calmly walked over the rocks and continued fishing in the sea front of me, totally oblivious, exactly as it should be Grin

This was shortlisted for the British Wildlife Photography Awards 2019 portrait category
