This is the adult female featured in my previous photos from November 2013. This afternoon she put the cubs on a small island and began foraging amongst the kelp between the island and me. Taken on the isle of Mull in a sea loch. Please Note: If you heading to Mull or anywhere else for that matter wishing to photograph Otters, please be aware how sensitive they are. Disturbing an Otter can have disastrous consequences and some people are stopping families getting to each other, cubs feeding and families trying to reach the safety of holts.

Stay downwind, stay low, stay hidden. If an otter sees you, quietly and slowly get up, turn around and walk away.
