    He looks like he belongs on a horror movie….and I mean that in a nice way. You shot is so sharp…and he has a ferocious look on his face. this is fantastic!

  • Thanks Mary-Anne they do look a bit that way. Usually if they hear you coming they take for cover. So you may only hear them and then see there tail.
