I watched this river otter from shore as it spent time fishing in the harbour. It left bubble trails while swimming underwater so I was trying to predict where it would surface so I could get a shot before of it just before it popped up. However, as the otter moved faster than the bubbles, it proved too difficult! Luckily, the otter had a specific spot on shore it liked to eat on, so I was finally able to capture this underwater image as it made it's way to that spot.
