Yeh yeh, Shoehorn beep beep but what a cool Otter. *grin*

Getting to grips with the new 5D2 it's a wolf in sheeps clothing alright.


Thank you so much for the BLUE, This little guy had a crazy 5 minutes and lucky for me I happened to be standing a few feet away at the time. It touched a 7 for a while and I thought maybe it might get top 3 but never expected a ribbon

THANK YOU

Wow, it totally looks like he's 'begging'! I pray you can see the humor of me quoting your comment. A super-cute photo and the ball's in your court...I especially love 'shoehorns'!

I've put this on StumbleUpon the day it arrived in my mailbox and though it's amazing that it has been stumble more than 120k ever since, it is no wonder as it's just one of the most cute animal pictures I ever saw.

How did you get him to pose, enticed him with, food I bet. Or threatened to eat his other/otter friends. Poor thing he's praying for you to not shoot him with your canon.
:-) I shot 3 meerkats for the 3's challenge, then forgot to enter them last weekend.
