It's very good!  I like the framing.  

It looks a little, even a lot to the neotropical otter that can be seen in the Pantanal.

Thank you @Bush dog. i have only ever seen otters in the Uk! We do our otter watching on Mull mostly from the car- my days of being stealthy and sneaking down to hide behind a rock and get very close, over slippery seaweed -if they ever existed- are long gone! Also it it means we can view them and not disturb them- we do tend to watch first and then try to take photo's, and on Mull there are good paces where you can do that and not disturb the otters or the locals!

In fact Mull has become comparatively busy, especially the Loch na Keal area so we tend to look for them in other equally good places-they are  always such  uplifting sightings

Another recommendation for Mull. I spent a week there earlier this month on a trip with two other photographers and a guide with the main aim of photographing otters. We saw several otters every day but not always close to or in positions where we could approach them without causing disturbance. On our last afternoon however we were able to spend 4 hours lying in wet seaweed in the rain with this very relaxed male:
