Yeah: I reckoned I'd need to be doing something other than my dog (as beautiful as he is) or my cat (as serene and photogenic as he is)... so it had to be one of the guinea pigs or the rabbit or the algae eater.... hmmm. And so Miss Honey Bun became the lucky star (yes her name is in fact Honey Bun, but Miss Tilly is her screen name)... Really think this will end up at about a 5.8 in the end, but of course I think it deserves a 7.4!!!!! Am sure that the front page will reflect real Out Of The Box thinking... well hoping it does ....

She sat amazingly still between her bursts of busy-ness which is why I could get clarity at 1/50s... Modelling fees really reasonable: personally I think that she sold herself out for a few leaves of Coriander :-)

Hey you beat you expected score and he sure is a cute little.... rodent. Really, Miss Honey Bun is very adorable and you've made a wonderful photo that adds a breath of fresh air from all of our cat and dog photos.

Awwwww! (That's an official score of "Awwww", but I'm not finding "Awwwww" in the choice of scores I can give...)

She's a sweetie! Putting her on the hat works well.

Cute use of the hat. It adds texture and the atonal quality brings my eye squarely onto Miss Tilly's wonderfully cute little face.

How adorable :-) Miss Tilly looks like a very cooperative little piglet. The hat makes a nice frame for her.

I really like this shot! The colors of the guinea pig and the hat are just perfect. I think the cloth underneath could have been more complimentary, but not so much that it takes away from the cuteness of your friend.

I love how you chose complementing colors in this photo, great texture on the piggie.

I think you could have cropped this a bit more on the right and top so as to put the eye on the "rule of thirds" intersection. Nice compilation,
