I saw this happy chap watching his owner bring in the food at the Tatton Park Country Fair on Saturday. His eyes followed the guy around, never once looking away from his "lunch".
His stare fascinated me hence the closeup. A rare attempt at bird shots for me.
Thanks for looking in and if you have a moment open the larger view

A superbly detailed capture. Perhaps, if you will allow me, just a tad too close on the crop. A little more space on the left would balance things better.

Evil shot Ray - love it. Viewed large makes you sit up and pay attention. Very much enjoyed the detail and that smashing non-distracting background projects the image superbly.
