It's small and cute. Wonderful capture with great DOF, focus on the head, nice background

Welcome back Clint. Your patience and artistic eye always shows in your photos. The focus on the eye is perfect. I do like the blurred background. I'm not as sure about the foreground. I think you may have missed a couple of places with the blur tool. If there was enough sharpness in the foreground in the original I may have opted to keep it there... but then again... maybe not. I'd have to see it. It is a special capture.

Hello Clint,
