One of your best, Des.  I can't begin to say enough about this beautiful, intimate study and the way it holds my attention and draws me right in to the frame.  That's the mark of an outstanding wildlife image.  8)

As everyone else has already commented, this is a really wonderful presentation that seems to draw you in to his world. Beautiful diagonal composition and spot on exposure of the blacks. Great work.
