Otter enjoying a fishy meal

Jan and Frieda Prinsloo are regular visitors to Rietvlei and have taken some great pictures of animal life at Rietvlei
On Friday 2 August 2013 they were in the Friends Bird Hide and saw an otter catching a fish quite close to the hide. The carp, Cyprinus carpio, was larger than the otter, but it dragged its meal past the hide to a small island nearby where it started consuming it. Frieda says they waited about an hour, but the otter was still feeding when they left the hide.
The pictures they took are in the following pages - click here to continue.
