I feel like if he were to talk he'd have an English accent and he'd be saying, "ah, what a curious creature. why, is it looking at me? Hello there." You should edit a top hat on him with a little bow tie.
Awesome shot anyway. Half-decent? I'd say! It's such a good composition and so vibrant.
Good. Remember it. You never need to explain your art. Not even to a critic. Just smile your lovely smile at them (it infuriates them, too. Just saying..LOL), nod, then take what you want, and toss the rest. It is your eye, and there a millions of people that will love it or not. You are the artist. And a damned fine one at that.
