I think he is sleeping with one eye open. Better to see you with.

Super Brian.
If you would like, stop by to view what Bud and I got photos of this past week.

I think you'll like 'em.

Super low shot, guess you were also having a low lie down to get that view, I do like the grass stalks in front too, Cheers, Jean

He may be snoozing, but it's with one eye pinned on you! Great shot.

I love how they tuck their heads in like that and keep one eye open to spy on you.
