Top marks for this one, old chap, the detail is very good.
I like the colour in the eye, as well. Perfectly lighted.
Being really 'picky', I would have cropped a little off the RHS...
...to give the appearance of more space on the left, for the little chap to look into.
You got him perfectly 'framed' in the inverted V of the willow branches, too...!

Excellent shot, Ed, and Simon's comment does seem to strike home with me too.
Wonderful detail and a nice catch of light in the eye.
