Just when he was ready to take a big bite of the leaf, this huge critter came along, but he wasn't about to relinguish his place at the dinner table.

Yes, it is.  It's an interesting picture if I don't, but the human brain, when seeing it, will automatically see it in human terms.  As you say, it's a "face."  We've spent 300,000 years or more interpreting faces.  It's the social and the survival instincts in us.  We even learn to read a kitty "face," even though its fur covered.  The ears and the angle of the head tell us a lot about what the kitty wants.  With George Frederick gone, Mandy has become much more demanding and more domestic.  We're now "her" people, and she wants to be around us  Before, we were George Frederick's people.  It's a fascinating change in behavior.

That is a really great picture! And it looks like he is really saying "No I am not going to share."

Thank you.  It was his, and he wanted to make sure I knew that.
