Otters

One day, while waiting for the ferry I looked over the wall and there was the Otter! I could not believe it. I had my camera with me too. Such luck.. But it ran out on the last frame. Watching it swim towards me i realised it had a rather large fish in its mouth. I watched with baited breath… as it got closer….Finger poised over the shutter button, ready and waiting for the final shot… the one where he comes out from the water.. closer and closer, his head bobbing up. Up for air, however, he ducked down and dissapeard into the rocks! No final shot for me this time. I still look every time I go for the ferry, my eyes searching the rocks and water but he has been very elusive.

Otters can be found along the old pier road and at the new Ferry terminal
