Superb capture, not only clear of natural habitat but on ice as well, Ade. Terrific light, detail and again that smidgeon of movement blur on the hind foot as he walks so carefully - really makes it for me. Love the title. Was this taken on the Levels?

Saw your comment somewhere, about today's light - it was nigh on perfect most of the day in our neck of the woods - good light white cloud, with the sun not quite breaking throughGrin

Me? - kept looking at it and going Grrrr!, every time I went out for a fag - two day First aid refresher course in NorthamptonSad
