Excellent sighting Dave and great use of the habitat. I suppose it's worth getting the paws muddy for a good dinner.
Make your life spectacular!

A lovely behaviour capture with this busy forager hunting for tasty morsels with those very capable front paws - they really do use them like hands.

Portrait very well captured. The surrounding environment is also beautiful.
