Cooling Otters: Lens-Artists Photo Challenge

Three guys cooling their jets

When it’s as hot as it’s been (102 degrees here yesterday!) I wish I could do a little cooling off by being an otter. Here are three cooling otters in motion.

They always look like they’re having so much fun.

Can you imagine sliding down an embankment and cooling off in a clear mountain stream?

  1. The colors and how they transition, the smooth texture of the otters, and the lines created by the otters as they swim…nice image, really nice.

    • Thank you! It’s not perfectly in focus, but that shows their motion. They don’t stay still for long! πŸ™‚

  2. They are really fascinating creatures and their slim lines in the water while swimming is very cool to follow. Talk about having fun!

  3. I love Otters too, in the Uk we have, though only ever saw them in the zoo, they are a good example of playfulness, agree with Tom’s comment there.
