    1,7 and 8 really stand out, though I think 8 is a real winner as you've got caught such a funny expression. 1 is almost as good but if I'm being picky I'd like all the otter to be as sharp as his face, although its interesting the way it is now as it directs your eyes right to his face which I think is a good thing; anyway... I like the composition, colour and expression regardless.

    Actually when I look at them a few times over #6 is a real grower; I think its cool that you've caught a really focused 'completed' feeling scene and you don't really look beyond it like in the others.

    Nice shots, and happy new year to you and your ottery minions :biggrin:

    :thumbup: for braving the wet & the mist to get these.

    #8 looks like he was inspired by Ozzy, lol. Love the sharpness of the otter, really adds to it having those two little legs sticking out between his teeth.

    I like #8 the best! :thumbup: The others seem to suffer with a high ISO? or is it the mist?

    BTW. No high res version of the last photo??? Like the lens camo! Maybe you should try a bit of hessian draped over it..............

    Highest ISO that was used was 400 so I'm guessing its the mist
    No there is no high res of the last photo, I wouldn't want the female population of TPF fainting en mass :lol:

    cheers

    Heehee, I knew even before opening the thread what would be the subject matter...otters!

    From that last pic, it looks like you're stalking them (and by shots 6 and 7 they're reacting to it).

    #8 is my fave...such a funny expression and out-of-the-ordinary capture. #1 is a close second...love the colour and the sharp detail of its face.
