Dear Cynthia and Debra. Thanks for taking the time to look and give such kind feedback. Truthfully, I think he was my best picture that day, and he was watching me feed the Swan's. I think his look was more, " Hey you do you see me? I am hungry too. Where's mine." LOL He was concentrating on me and the next piece of bread pretty good. #851911
