    Joe I have no idea how you do it but one thing that I am noticing with your work is the eyes - though for a good widlife/animal shot the eyes are most often the focus you seem to have some way of taking/processing (might be a bit of both) a shot os that the eyes you capture are not only there but really standing out.
    Also live his cheeky looking smile here ;)

    One comment is that images of wildlife made in captivity should be captioned as such. If an animal is photographed in an aviary, or wildlife recovery center, or a zoo, or an enclosed wildlife park, it's customary to label such images with that information. Not disclosing the information about wild species having been photographed in captivity in considered, well...you know...

    Thanks.... I think it is combo of both with selective sharpening and buning and dodging.
    Cheers, Joe
