An otter charity has said an image of a rare albino otter has been captured by an amateur wildlife photographer.
Karen Jack said the sight of the white animal eating a fish on rocks in Moray was “surreal”.
Grace Yoxon, of the Skye-based International Otter Survival Fund (IOSF) said the otter was “extremely rare”.
Ms Jack had to wait for the animal to reappear from the sea after catching a quick glimpse of it earlier.
She said: “I have been into photography for about three years as a hobby and love photographing wildlife, landscapes and my two cats.
“But it was just an amazing and surreal view of the albino otter, and for it to sit there and eat while we watched on was mind blowing.”
