River Otters

These are Rivers otters, I really wish the 4th one was looking in the same direction with the others but I guess some times you have to settle for a less than perfect composition.

Wow, very nice and cute.Where did you take this one. I can't believe I have been absent from your blog for like a week.
Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks Pijoux, I took this at the National Zoo in DC..welcome back.
There is always one that chooses to differ. Did you try the picture style? I used it for the wedding I had on Saturday and the pics were awesome.
Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks Jide...I have not tried the picture style as of yet, maybe sometime next week.

i don't know, nature that won't behave. Dotun if my shoti would give the pic a slight haricut at the bottom to remove the rock bottom right. nice capture
Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks Nev, I'd thought about that earlier but I really wanted more of the rock so I was concerned that cropping as suggested will mean sacrificing the rock to the left, thanks for your constructive critique.

Awww. Who knew river otters could be so adorable! One DOES wonder what they were looking at that was more interesting to them than you taking their pic.
Dotun Ayodeji: I think they were looking the numerous tourist walking by, thanks Ginnie.

great spot
Dotun Ayodeji: thanks Chantal!
Hi Dotun. The one looking away actually adds to the pic, a little sense of animation, movement, life. A super photo. I do agree about taking out the rock at the bottom. Very well done. Regards, Neil.
Dotun Ayodeji: thanks Neil!

Fabulous shot, and brilliant detail too.

I like the little smile 'for the camera' on the face of the nearest otter.

Lucky you to have seen them like this. smile
Dotun Ayodeji: Yes, I was lucky indeed, thanks Ellie.
