This was very neat idea AND execution, a concept that eludes me quite often ;) BW is perfect for this pic.

My favorite of this challenge and one of two tens given.

I'm not sure the angle is working here. I had to tilt my head before I could tell what it was. Good idea, but I think I would like it better straight and cropped at the bottom.

Great. It is soooo brilliant. Imagine, a mouse has eaten a cat!!! This photograph has to be going for a ribbon. Don't forget the challenge is
"Fantasy".
