Loch Arklet, Trossachs, Scotland.

A few of these guys (who are much gentler than their appearance suggests) were just by the gateway to the path down to the lochside but seemed a little nervous of my presence. So I went down the path a wee way, took off my camera rucksack and sat down and waited. Sure enough, their curiosity got the better of them and it wasn’t very long before they were sniffing round me.
