A different photo today. I took this one on the Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo, on the Lied Jungle, the World's largest indoor rainforest. At this place you can sense almost natural environment of the Asian, African and South American rainforests. This is a small-clawed otter, tipical from the Asian rainforest and are found in India, China, Indonesia and the Philippines.

Very interesting portrait. The animal looks scared or angry. I really like the expression on the animals face. Thank you for sharing.

It's sort of creepy looking and would make a good album cover.. I like it! Ewgards, Doug

Hi Ricardo, My impression of otters are the gesture when they feed themselves while floating on the water. I have never seen the image of the aggressive picture as shown in this picture. Nice action shot and good DoF.

Brilliant expressions and brilliant capture. This is good shot. The Otter is warning you for the flash light. Good composition.
Thanks for sharing.

Strange and funny picture.
The otter don't seem very friendly ;-)
It´s a good composition with the blurred background that gives more emphasis to the animal.

Good timing to capture the otter with his mouth open. Actually he doesn't look agressive but as if he is laughing at you.

An interesting composition capturing the full emotion and expression of the otter. I like this layout and the water surrounding it proved to be very effective by providing some movement. A nice catch!! Have a wonderful weekend.

You really captured this character in a frolicking mood - he resembles a dog in his expression and posture...Well composed with a good background blur to enhance. I like the shadow effects as well. Well done.

This is quite a funny picture, that amuzed me very much.
She really seems very agressive in here, or may be she just wants to interact with you and problably is friendly, but I wouldn't bet much on getting closer that this...Anyway, it's a good and original capture of an otter.
Very well done!

Hi Ricardo, this is a wonderful wildlife shot even if it is taken in a zoo. You have captured the detail of the otter's face well with the flash only giving a few spots of overexposure (it's impossible to get it right with a built-in flash).

Good catch of the otter Ricardo, they can move real fast and are hard to photograph some times. You show him well, thank you

Nice timely shot.Good clarity and lighting.One more good thing is that the otter is directly looking into your lens though its expression is somewhat like a disapproval.
Good one and TFS - Vikram
