This guy was very friendly. Hopping around, within 6 -10 feet, of Snaffles and I. Watching for a bit, I noticed his patterns. Most wildlife, have it's habits. Just like us, our favourite place to hang or eat. This pile of branch, was one of his. So I found my shot and did a few rounds with him. He would come and go. But always would return quickly. Camera was handheld and very low.
Hope you enjoy the fun.

I gave this a 9. Really wanted it to ribbon, surprised it's not in the top 10! Still a great placing, well done.

Nice image! Did you wash him before shooting? He looks really clean! :-) Really suits the background. Great finish!
Thanks for the comments. Never realised animals were repetitive like that. Will keep it in mind in future!

As far as I know, I think it's meant to be "Snaffles and me" in the situation of your second sentence. Remove "Snaffles" from the sentence and you'd use "me" and (so I've been told multiple times by people who apparently understand grammar) you use "me" rather than "I" in that context. Weird, eh?

I just squealed aloud at the absolute cuteness! Haha. Beautifully crisp, bokeh in all the right places, lovely. Great work.

What a great expression! Love (that's what he told me to say....the little guy...there....in your photo) the juxtaposition of the tail against the evergreen(?) snow capped out of focus left handed balancing thing-a-ma-jig.......... we are having a STARE-OUT!!!! 10
