Hello Mike!
Very nice close-up with nice details and interesting object. The only thing I would like to change is to use some noise reduction :)
Best greetings,

Hi Mike

What great big eyes. Cute face. With the dark streaks either side of his head it looks like he is wearing spectacles. Lovely camera work. Thank you!
