Photo of the Day – Otter, Beauly Firth, Inverness-shire.
Strong winds hampered our day but we still managed great views of an otter… though he made us work hard. The wind created continuous wave ripples – at any one moment the flick of an otters tail could have been almost anywhere. We kept losing it, so decided to split up and search opposite ends of a 1/2 mile stretch. We met in the middle to watch this otter struggle ashore with a large lumpsucker. We were also struggling – with 50mph gusts and a lens fully extended at 600mm – and handheld!
