Camera Club members have been taking lots of photos of water during the wet weather.

The River Thames, the Oxford Canal and Port Meadow all featured among the photos sent in by club members to match our weekly theme.

But it was Jo Brown’s photo of an otter peeping out of the water in an Oxford lake which really stood out.

It’s her first camera club entry and it’s our photo of the week.

Oxford Mail: The shot won praise from her fellow photographers.

Tania Delohery-Duffy posted: "Beautifully captured! Which lake was this? I’d love to try and capture a shot of an otter without being in a zoo."

Andrew Holt added: “Jo this is a great shot, I lived in Oxford from 1951 till 1980 and never saw an otter in all that time and I was an ardent angler that spent a lot of time on the water.”

Each week camera club members are given a theme and then post their pictures on the club’s Facebook page.

The next theme is transport.
