Was going to toss them... but after cropping they started to grow on me.

The first one is the good one. Beautiful! Why would you want to toss that? So pretty! I love his eyes...

Maybe it's just the frustration speaking. I followed him around for an hour early this morning trying to get a good shot and never really got it. Shadows, poor lighting, bad bokeh/background, wrong angles... He just wouldn't cooperate.

I don't think they get much better than the first...It has color,focus, BG and light as well as a fine composition...

Thanks for the compliments guys. Guess if I was satisfied I wouldn't keep trying to get a better shot. :)

I love the first shot. What a beautiful little guy. I love his purple eyes. Nice shot. I might consider cropping it along the top and bottom to make it look very long...
