For crying out loud! Just when I thought you couldn't come up with anything cuter... sheesh. Where did you get the super tiny teddy bear? I want one for myself lol. That's going in my favorites with the rest of your buddies. M

Christa Binder
oh my gosh, this is really cute, sorry I said cute I couldnt help it. 7/7 I am adding this to my favorite images.

Keith Lancaster
Hi Ellen Another fine shot of this wonderful little creature!

Eddie D. M.
I guess your little pet is already a superstar! Nicely done, Ellen!

Pankaj Purohit
Oh, that's again funny and great Ellen. He is showing his teddy-bear to me like as he bought recently and I didn't saw this till the last visit with him....! Yes this is nice little guy...! (My words to this rat)

Jim Tipton
Hi Ellen I can't tell you how much I like these pictures. This one is adorable. You need to do childrens books and make a zillion. All my best-Jim

Julio Segura Carmona

Gabriela Grigorescu
he is so cute! 7/7 as anonymous, the system won't allow me to vote directly.

Don't Bite The Bear ! Ellen-my bears have authorized me to rate this 7/7 subject to a promise that your little friend isn't going to bite the bear. I trust you so I'll go ahead and rate it now but don't let me down-I don't need any trouble here! All the best, cb :-)

Ivana Vostrakova
7/7! :-)))

Bill Evans
He looks friendly enough Ellen, but I wouldn't want to try to take that bear from him. I can't get to sleep without mine. Bill. PS - Don't take Jim Tipton's comment about a children's book lightly, and maybe you've already given it some thought, but it's a great idea and definitely marketable with the right publisher.

Douglas Brill
This is too cute! What a face! Does this guy know his picture is being taken? He is posing for you! Simply Adorable.

Linda Davidson

Thank you Anamaria!

Ellen van Deelen
Stuart Thanks very much for your comment! I dont know anymore how long it took for this photo. Normally I take about 300 photo's in an hour. (of my rats) and i am happy if one or two are what I want. After this photo, I tried thousands and thousands more ,but not one like this. So, I quess I was lucky :)

Stuart Duffy
Bare it all Everything is perfect technically... don't crop it more though, perfect crop and as for the composition ... you know it... loved the twitch in the nose and the sightly bowed head! How long does it take to get the shot and how many shots to get this one? 7/7

Janice Rickert
How did I miss this one?

This photo is so cute, and perfectly in focus, with perfect depth of field. I saw this photo because of the last photo I commented on. That person's favorite photo was this one. You have the patience of a saint.

Trisha Jean-Angela

This has been in my faves forever so I am really surprised to see I have not commented on this great photo! Thank you for sharing your talent and making me smile! :)

Vinit Menon

It's a great capture, very well done.  Like the way it has posed for the shot as well.
