         For those unable to watch them on a regular basis (and one would need to live in the right places to do this) sightings of Eurasian Otters Lutra lutra are much prized and it required a guided visit to Shetland for the photographer to be able to take these photographs of these animated and fascinating animals with the assistance of an expert guide (the excellent Tim Stenton of Shetland Wildlife). Perhaps not surprisingly these have needed to be cropped. Several sightings were possible although unfortunately the weather was persistently wet and the light was awful on each occasion, necessitating higher ISO settings than might have been desirable. Mind you, Otters really donít mind the rain!
