Big wow here Lillian. Superb detail, colour and light. Am guessing that is remnants of honey on the tree. Excellent.

His mouth is probably open because he is eating honey, but he almost looks threatening, popping out of the hole in the wood to scare us with those enormous beady eyesTongue! Love this, especially the framing of the head by that wonderful piece of wood, and the little bit of honey on his whiskers.
Have you considered removing the extra catchlight in the left eye, Lillian?
