|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This sea otter has only one foot, the loose is the result of a shark bite? entanglement with fishing gear|
one of perhaps 2,500, they are infected by parisites in domestic cat litter that is flushed down the drain
If you don't think that man has an impact on natural systems, you are suffering from rectal cranial inversion .
sorry my soap box today ...

Wonderfull picture - you really control those otters!
Could you detail more what we see. I first thought the thing in the middle was a stone on his tummy (a habit of them). Then I saw whiskers on it and was wondering if it is the head of another one. Now, I would think it is the knee from the left leg. I guess that it is the right leg that was amputated and that we see on the left of the pic.
The feet could have been eaten by a rat while it was a new-born. Could that be too?
If there is room on that soapbox, I will join you. It really bothers me to see how much we are ruining the ecosystems with our pollution.
Anyway, great shot. I love how you get this shots of them in their natural environment and down at their level from your kayak.

Great shot, very good detail on the head .Nice colour and composition.TFS
Good note with this photo. Great photo with the perfect kayak POV. It is tough to see this beautiful animal with one foot, but good to see that it can still survive.
Amazing to see the little guy still is able to survive...
Well framed image, with good natural colours and fine details!
