Very nice, Sandy. The hole in the log frames this critter’s face beautifully.

The log opening not only makes a good frame but the pattern pulls your eyes inward. Nice photo!

Beautiful subject and great setting !
IMHO would have preferred lower flash intensity.

Jagdeep, Me too! This was a grab catch I was totally unexpecting!
He popped out for 1/2 second and didn’t show up again.

Nice work, Sandy. I like the natural “framing” and the position of the subject. Good flash work too.


Very cool shot. I like it a lot. I wouldn’t change a thing about it.
