Sven Začek - I just got my nails done


I was lucky to meet such a vain character swimming in a river eating fish and frogs. Slowly I crept closer and realized that this was a fancy dinner, because look at the fresh red nailpolish :)

    Very nice nails indeed. Just needs to get the mustache trimmed as well!

    Lovely picture. The presence of the tail in the background gives some good balance, I think.

    What a look and yes, impressive nails as well: a winner shot! Sven, I am so jealous of your otters... When do you invite me to photograph them??? ;-)))

    I wish it was so easy. This year should have been good, because of the cold and most rivers freezing over leaving only a few spots for otter to hunt. But still I only saw these great animals a couple of times and only got to photograph one properly. So it would be a risky trip for you to come here and see nothing :D

    I see what you mean. But you know, I am a patient guy and sometimes... lucky! ;-))

    Yeah, with Sven Mr. Luck is visiting also more frequently. Dunno about the otter, but can recommend him with Ural owl, 2 out of 3 meetings for me have been with Sven in places unfamiliar to him. And we have a photo shoot together average once a year. So book him soon, before NGM will read this :-P.
