That quizzical expression tells me he sees his reflection in your lens - I hope you have a protective filter on it, as he is liable to interpret the image he sees as a rival and attack! You need to train him to be a better portrait subjecct and not look directly into the lens! :lol: Great shots!

How "wild" is he? Marvellous achievement even with a 300 mm.

Thanks Everyone for your kind comments.
I was fairly close 10-12 feet away.
He is totally wild, living in suburbia.
