A Little Big Step

This is such an adorable picture. So innocent and he's soooo fluffy!!! I rarely see otters not wet (which apparently didn't last long on this guy since he fell in).

I love the detail, I've never noticed otters feet before until this photo. I knew they were webbed but never actually saw that. It's not a detail normally captured ex in photos.

I like that the little guy is facing you for the picture. He has a great expression too, he most definitely is worried about the gap. Almost "are you kidding I'm first?" Which apparently was a valid worry.

I like the focus and the depth of field. I wish you could see his siblings a little more but I'm not sure this photo would have the same effect with all of them in it together. There's something catching about him on the rock alone with his siblings bustling behind him.

Very awesome job, not an animal that is captured too often. Lovely photo, very cute.
