What a terrific capture, Deborah. I chuckled aloud when I saw this guy with his apparently crossed legs that appear to be way too slender for his rotund body. Wonderful detail, perspective and color. A favorite. #8787548

My goodness, he's a little butterball, isn't he - except that it's not butter that made him this way! Love his crossed legs - and your POV and use of vertical frame. Great timing with terrific details. #8794395
