Photograph by Mark Bridger, National Geographic Your Shot
A young female otter runs toward photographer Mark Bridger at a wildlife center in Lingfield, Surrey, in England. “I’ve always wanted to try and get a shot of an otter running straight at me with all four feet off the ground,” writes Bridger. “They were like really little dogs the way they chased each other around, so I lay on the ground with a 300mm lens on my camera and tried to capture one running straight at me.”
Bridger’s picture recently appeared in Your Shot’s Daily Dozen.
