Some River Otters on the banks of the Rio Grande south of Taos, New Mexico. They are some of my favorite creatures to watch and are always entertaining, but hard to find. This group of 7 (6 in image) were so active that it was hard to get pictures of them. Processed in phone app, Painteresque.
All C&C welcome. Please click on image. Thanks.

I know just what you mean Joe, I love to watch their playful antics too - and I have been known to be so entertained by them that I've forgotten I have a camera in my hand..... What a lovely sighting.

Cute as. Beautiful ones they are and the only time I see them is on the TV or the net, so always great to see Joe. Nice effect and certainly a painterly effect, love it.

They seem to have a pretty good time there and interesting effect.
