The Otter ( Lutra canadensis )
Another shot from the Cotswold Wildlife Park.
Was this hard to get!!!

I was lucky enough to get to the enclosure as they were fed ,so the otter family was out in force----however seperating a single adult was nigh on impossible,they climbed over each other,under each other like a moving mass.
Normally nocturnal ,and once they had finished eating they went back inside their "home "I was lucky to get this shot.All the others have a tail,paw or other body part not belonging to them in picture.

I like your composition Kim although I would have preferred to see a little more light around his eyes just to add a little sparkle to his face.Beautiful creatures,an animal that I would love to see in the wild.
