A family of wild otters (mother and three cubs), feeding and playing on the ice.
These pictures were taken during an exceptionally cold spell. The otters happily frolicked on the ice, and, would occasionally vanish momentarily into the overhanging vegetation.
Movement could be seen below the ice as they swam about in the icy water fishing.
They would then return to the overhanging vegetation at the side of the frozen water, where they would eat the fish.
