One of my favourite animals is the otter. This stemmed from my childhood after watching the film Ring of Bright Water. I have observed otters here on Skye, but not very often. I can remember watching an otter foraging on the shore, while I sat on the rocks of a local beach. I kept very still and the otter swam very close. He floated on his back as he munched on a crab or a fish. It was a magical moment. This experience inspired my haiku The Otter.
"Love Skye-Love Nature-Love Life"
Skyenatureblog.com provides an artistic journey through the seasons, describing the natural beauty of the island through, prose, poetry, art, photographs and videos. I hope to give readers a taste of the Skye experience.
I hope you enjoy the journey
The Isle of Skye has dramatic mountains, wild glens and amazing seascapes; it offers a varied wilderness for free spirits. There is an abundance of hidden places full of native trees, wildflowers and wildlife to enjoy, in peace and tranquility. This sensational Island changes constantly through the seasons, with wild Atlantic storms, snowy mountains and balmy Summer nights with spectacular skies. The Summer wildflowers provide a colourful feast for insects, which feed the many species of songbirds, both native and Summer visitors.
This otter caught my attention. Thanks Anita
