Otterly ridiculous

  1. First of all Merry Christmas, I have been on the road this past holiday with a very busy schedule of stops. I have missed the forum for over 48 hours and have been suffering withdrawal, well we just go in and wanted to post some from our walk to the Brandywine zoo on Christmas eve. All taken with the D2X and the 70-200VR. Images are shot handheld at f 6.3 and shutter speeds from 1/45s to 1/60s
    Shouldn't chew with your mouth open

    A few portraits these guys are tough with the gleam from their coat, but they shook dried and posed for me.
