My buddy the North American River Otter slides silently through the water looking for an opportunity to enter his den underneath those twigs on the riverbank.
A beautiful nature shot. I love all the earthy textures and colors.

Beautiful! I really like the ripples you captured.

Way cool! I like both the Ripples and the reflection here! Well done!

Wonderful opportunity to be photographing the otter! Nice shot.

You're right -- he's sneaky. I was busy looking at the leaf debris on the surface of the water and the great reflections. It you hadn't mentioned he was there, I might have missed him altogether. So much for close observation, eh? But it's early morning here and I'm still sleepy (excuses, excuses... lol).

Nice reflection, the root of the treeeat the bottom looks like an upside down skull...

Wonderful with the reflections again... like Michael said, I really love the earthiness of this.

Man, I'd like to be buddies with a North American River Otter! ;) Seriously though, nice candid shot. Always neat to see animals and things I wouldn't usually even realize were there.

Nicely textured water.
21 Feb 2008 6:13pm
Wonderful intriguing shot. Well done

I love the textures of the tree bark in the reflection and the ripples created by the the Otter. Beautiful Craig.

Great reflection!!! Love the colors

Really superb capture of this scene in the wild. As it happens, I also attempted a shot at an otter, but that was at the Sealife centre in Birmingham where we brought Elise last week. (My very poor attempt at it as the otter scurried by, on this post at our family blog).
The reflections in your image here are really marvellous, imho.

Nice colors and details.

Neat shot Craiger! Looks like he's on a covert mission.

Good framing, to include the water, the textures, and with the beautiful otter in just the right place.
22 Feb 2008 12:24pm
