Sven Zacek - Enjoying the sunset

After searching the river for minks, beavers and otters I finally got rewarded one day with beautiful light and a feeding otter. It was catching frogs and fish and eating them on the frozen ice edge. This was a fitting image to a day I will never forget. Just as the sun was setting the otter stopped feeding and curled itself dry in the snow and then rested like this for thirty or so seconds. He was not the only one enjoying the sunset.
