Stompin' through the woods yesterday and almost stepped on this little fellow.

You did well. We have fewer and fewer with each passing year. Yours seem to be a little redder than ours which are brown and green. There once was a time when one could sit outside in the evening hours and see five or six near your feet catching insects for you, but that's no longer the case.

You didn't kiss it, did you?

Nice shot. Foreground interest, background bokeh, crisp subject ... I like.

Thanks, everyone. No, I didn't actually kiss it! ;)

He let me stick my camera lens to within about 10cm (4 inches) of his face for this shot.

I knew that would be your mark of excellence and paid extra attention getting the right focus on his eye. :D

and you did great on that point! and that point alone is what captures the viewer. This is not the critique forum, but other marks of excellence would be reducing background distractions, maybe better cropping... that's why a great photograph is so difficult. There are several marks of excellence required in each one. Hope that helps...Marko

It's a great shot - but no kiss from me ;-). It isn't just my type :rolleyes:
