A more natural pose here Lillian,
than all these Fringe performers I see.
But there has been some I would have liked to give a hug as well !!
Good shot.

I rather think this fine creature would have enjoyed a hug for food reasons.
Excellent portrait of my favourite cat.

A great image but I feel you are letting the camera find your focal point.
The nose is so sharp but the eyes are a little soft.
So I think you not set you focal point on camera.
Look inside camera and use spot focal point you can move them around and get the image sharp where you want.
That is the only thing I can see to help you get better results.
So many awards means you are hitting the right results and I looking to take you one level higher..

The eyes have it Lillian, you seem to have a way with animals, they don't seemed to be fussed by your presence.
