Well taken the eyes are nice and sharp and he looks like he is enjoying his lunch
well seen and taken

A very good shot indeed Helen, a spot on composition, sharp on the eye and with catchlights.
Like it loads, very well done.

As said by George and Steve a cracking shot spot on with the focus, picked up perfectly on his face.
Just one thing though Helen I think it's a lemur not a meercat .

Oops Thank you for the comments & thank you Jeffrey for noticing that. Where on earth did I get Meercat from, I must have had a senior moment

A super picture Helen, one little compositional thing: it is often preferable to allow space for the lemur to 'look into' as it were. ie have the eyes on the left third rather than the right third. The viewers' eyes tend to be directed towards the lemur's face rendering the left bit somewhat redundant.
Cover up the left third and then have a look to see what I am getting at. Super picture otherwise.

A very good image of the Lemur Helen, great detail in its fur and it stands out very well against the grass background, well taken.

Hhaha! I looked at the image and thought it's not a meercat; now we know it;s a lemur. Good point by Frank about the composition. Well done on the focusing, though.

Thank you all for the comments, A senior moment Alan, it sure doesn't look like a Meercat haha. Thank you Frank for your advice.
