For one that has been stuffed, it still has a rather if unexpected benign smile, Herman.
Yes, how could you not take a shot.
But I am happy it's on your friend's wall and not our'sWinkWink

I hate these wall "decorations" but the image is great. I once had lunch at a "big" house and the table centre was a stuffed fox.......30 years ago and never forgotten.

I love the "Mona Lisa" smile here Herman - but alas too saddened that he is not out a running wild. Great shot though.

My first thought was that, with a different background, you could have pretended he was captured in the wild. Now it is done. Ivor has set him free.
