Stunning Chris, you really are great at whichever type of photography you turn your hands at and sometimes... just sometimes, it makes me jealous of your talent Wink

Well done. That has got to go on your wall.

(By the way are you sure he isnt Clement Fraud with excess facial hair?)

Awww he's gorgeous. Works really well with the dark background.

Fabulous, those eyes are simply a ploy to get you to give it more food...don't try and resist these are only set to low power and its already, Mac

A simply cracking image Chris, definitely one for the wall. Just a shame Smudge is not a yellow lab...but you can't have everything can you!
