    Nice moment…appropriate title. Nicely framed and composed. Looks like it is saying a little prayer for all the other otters in light of Otter Awareness Week.


  • Or maybe she’s saying a prayer for all us humans who just don’t get what life is truly about ;) Thank you so much for your comment and fav Scott. Greatly appreciated. Always happy to hear from you.
