Hi Eyal
And I am sure he can make a big stink too!
Very cute little guy, and looking at the date, Before Autofocus, I think, you did a marveous catch.
Somm PP can fix the ear, I think

Nice picture of a cute animal!
I love the composition and the light. Focus is sharp on the eyes (good point) but DOF should be a little more to ensure shaprness to the tip of its nose. However this is a lovely picture that will seduce most kids, including the kid deep inside of myself ;o)

Cute picture. Good composition.

marvellous composition
