photoblog image Sea Otter

Sea Otter

I took this picture while we were on holiday this summer. I haven't done anything to it except 'sharpen the edges' one click.

added later .. There was a pair of Sea Otters. The first we knew about them was when we heard them calling to each other. They seemed to be having great fun chasing each other through the water. Sometimes they would rest for a just a moment on their back as in this shot, almost teasing the people who were trying to take photographs.
