Otter (Lutra lutra) Isle of Mull and Shetland Isles.
The otters of Mull are a wonderful rare and photogenic subject.The best way to photograph otters in the wild is to stay still and silent on the shore this avoids disturbing the animals who need critical time and space to feed: with patience you may be lucky enough for the Otter to come to you. The latest images were taken on one of my photography tuition days with the otters when ( summer 2021 and Spring and Autumn 2022) we had some fantastic prolonged encounters, in particular with two different sets of otter mother and cubs. Contact me here if you wish to come along on our next trip on the Isle of Mull. Gowild@freeuk.com
Following on in the gallery are images from many years :2020, 2019, 2018, 2017 and (October 2016) from another fabulous trip to the Isle of Mull where I was lucky enough to find an otter tackling a huge thorn back ray. Before this in spring 2015 I was again on Mull and had some incredibly close and wonderful encounters. In the gallery following this are also a family of Otters: this time a mother and two cubs playing in crystal clear sea on the Shetland Isles.
