Scotland Part 2: Wildlife

Despite the omnipresent rain, the hardy wildlife of Scotland perseveres – while the photographer huddles in the car! Lol. From a boat trip out to see the seals, to the Osprey Centre (said ospreys remained┬áresolutely too far away), to the hills of the Cairngorms, and finally to a nighttime hide, there were a huge variety of animals.
