Oh he is amazing!!! What a fantastic capture The detail and expression is wonderful! FAV for me! . I had one of these guys steal some sun glasses from my face. He was staring at me and I thought he was so cute making eye contact with me. He flew over to me and reached his hand through the cage and grabbed my glasses. That was what he was staring at. I was lucky I didn't get my eyes scratched out. He proceeded to the corner of the cage and chewed on them and them brought them back to me...it was all rather funny really.

He's talking to you Phil, probably asking how Bolton is doing! Great fur detail & that mouth is amazing!

These are cute little fellows normally - but seen like this with the red mouth, they are like little devils!

@happypat a bit daft Pat and only one home game left now, so i needed to top up my football matches to make up for gap until August !

@phil_howcroft

I looked at your exif and found this shot had a longer focal length - 50 mm could have been a bit close for this fellow, I don't know!!! I'm interested in what you say about changing lenses outside as I didn't do it at first but now I do sometimes - very carefully.
