Both are needed to tell the story - I like the way that they represent him weighing up his options Smile

A great candid pair. The expression on Callum's young face lends it self to so many possible narratives, especially image number one. "A Grand Champion in the making?"

Mouse-over between them and you a scene that lasted at least quarter of an hour... Thanks early birds, and Happy Sunday to you!

I had no idea what this was until I read your introduction! It's charming!
Thanks for your comment about the fox's ears - I know; it's annoying - I'm not quick enough on the draw! Sad

Getting down is fine, it's the getting back up afterwards...
Thanks everyone. I should add that Callum is one of the youngsters here who volunteer with quite a number of local projects during school holidays - the Community Allotment, the Ground Force litter-picks, lots of other activities besides. Makes a change from the ones who hang around in the Co-Op trolley shelter all day smoking...

Well done to the young man for having these interests, and to his parents for presumably instilling in him a sensible attitude towards such past-times.
