A great image with stunning detail. The colour of the tongue underneath the water and details of the eye, wet ear and the snout stands out well and the soggy fur display well. An image of an animal not featured so much and which you where fortunate to capture and share with us. An overall great image, presented in a pleasant manner. Beautiful composition. Best regards and thanks for sharing.

Hi Jim. Something a bit different from the birds today. The Coypu always look such a strong looking animal to me. I like this picture with this one in the water. With its large brown eye looking around. Good detail in the wet fur with natural looking colours. well taken TFS.
Have a good weekend.
Talking of eye contact - did you actually swim with the animal in the portrait?
But seriously, it certainly is widely distributed, and I seem to remember our guide in Tierra del Fuego talking about it... Where did you photograph it?
It is amazing, how big the snout is - nearly like a dog's. The animal's fur looks quite stiff; talking of which, it is such a shame to kill them for fur-coats.
I guess they became a pest - like so many other introduced animals - by escaping from ranches...
I wonder, why is has such a bright orange tongue?!?
A nice touch to your perfect photo is the choice of maroon font colour for your copyright - matching the colour of the ear.
Enjoy the rest of your week-end

a very beautiful portrait of the Nutria, which is a noxious animal in Europe, because it is not autocochthonous and changes the natural biodiversity, very good sharpness and splendid colours, a pleasing close composition

You must have returned while I was gone! So good to see you posting again. I chose to comment on this first because I have never seen a Nutria before. When I was a little girl women wore Nutria coats. Amazing close-up showing off his wet fur and fantastic eye.

The close-up view is allowing me to see the details and colors of the head of the coypu. It is clear and sharp. It is well framed. The reflections on the water are assets to the composition. Have a nice day.
