Beautiful portrait. I might be tempted to cheat and clone out the grass over the face.

You know wormsie, its a funny thing but I have no problem with exposure blending, dodging and burning and all the rest of it, but when it comes to wildlife I just cannot bring myself to add or remove stuff that was not in the original capture.

It was a very frustrating picture as we tried so so hard to get our vehicle in the right position but the scrubby vegetation was just not playing ball and we really did not to stick a tyre sidewall next to this fellow.

In fact the whole drive was frustrating (relative term).  Mostly as when we came back vervet monkeys had got into our house and eaten a 2 month stash of crisps and s$£t on my monitor and hard drives and destroyed the sour dough starter, traumatised the cat and consumed several packets of noodles and bicarbonate of soda - that has to hurt!

The mess was biblical.
