Cute li'l bugger ain't he? It's a tough capture, tho. My eyes are first drawn to the area of greatest contrast, namely, its back, but that's oof and not the center of interest. The face, on the other hand, is properly in focus, but naturally so dark that not much can be seen. So my eyes seem to switch between the two areas not sure of where to land. I think I would have lowered the contrast a bit, perhaps darkened the back and brought up the face a bit more. Just my 2 penny critique.
