    Awww, it's so cute - I just want to cuddle it forever X). I really like the background on this one too, it's a bit different from the other ones. You should submit these to National Geographic! I can really see that angry owl one in there. National Geographic seems to want to include odd/weird/gross/heart-breaking photos. The owl would go under weird lol.

      Maybe I will lol, I really need to be more active there. Maybe once I've added all my old photos on here, I'll start adding on Nat Geo. It's really hard keeping up with so many different places lol

      It is hard to keep up. But at the same time, it seems to be working for you. You're building your presence and spreading your photography :D. The more people that see = the better ^.^.

      I noticed sometimes I do, sometimes I don't ^.^;. It depends on which groups you submit to I guess.

    Why haven't I seen this before?!!?
    This is great. Perfect composition and great use of background bokeh. It really gives the whole picture a sense of seclusion :)
