Sea Otter Skimming the Surface of Water
Skimming the Surface

One of the first thing I noticed about photographing marine mammals is that many of them are completely graceful moving through the water. Skimming the Surface illustrates just how smoothly this Sea Otter is able to move throughout the water.

 

What also captures the eye in the image is the reflection that the nose creates in the water and the long whiskers that are visible on the right side of the otter.
