Great timing, caught that beauty spot on Sylvia, super detail.
You certainly captured some great images at BWC, perhaps worth a trip some time.

What I am seeing here is the effectiveness of the claws for grip.

Technique wise, although you can see what the background it is nicely out-of-focus to concentrate the eye on the polecat / tree stump.

The pose is good as well, but I suppose they get so much much practice it just comes naturally Wink
