Looks a little soft around the facial area, and sharper toward back of neck. Cute fellah though Smile

I personally feel that we have an over pre-occupation with sharpness these days.

Many pictures in the Readers Gallery are, in my view, over sharpened, which can give an unnatural feel to the pictures.

It also depends on the final enlargement you intend for the picture.

It is a pity in some ways, that with digital you do not have to print out every photograph to examine it, as was the case at one time with film.

Perhaps this is why many colleges insist on their photographic students using film cameras initially in their coursework.

Just the views of an old timer,

What seems to have happened here is that the camera has focused on the grass to the left, one of the best tips I have learned when photographing animals is to manually set the auto focus point and focus on the eye, that way in busy scenes like this the camera won't focus on the wrong part of the image
