Excellent capture, Paul. Really nice exposure of the blacks. This fellow presents an almost humorous appearance standing up so straight. A fine image.

Great pose with the toes turned out for balance as it stands erect on the slippery ice. Lovely behaviour capture, Paul with a touch of humour. A shame the light is so flat but that's a normal dark, winters day - and you made the best of it!

This really made me smile- I didn't know they could stand up like that. I like the way the fur stands out against the ice/snow- makes an interesting contrasting pattern. A charmer!

Nice detail on the fur and good exposure under challenging light.
