What an interesting photo and POV. Beautiful detail to color and light, wonderful emotion from child holding animal, which I am not sure if dead or alive. I'm thinking dead because of the tongue hanging out of its mouth. In any case great photo.

First: Welcome to TE. I wish you every success with your photography hobby.
Your first photo is really very original. Small animals such as dogs and cats are popular all over the world. There is an animal from the local region, whose name I do not know. Somehow it resembles a small kangaroo. However, the picture is great. My compliments.

Wow, I think this is absolutely brilliant photo. It so captures the moment. I wonder what is the boy looking at and what is he thinking! The animal`s expression in the eyes, the tongue and its little "hands" are also very much worth noting :-). Can you plz tell me the name of the animal?
Well done, this is definitely one of photos that tell a story. Also very focused and sharply clear colours.

Bienvenue sur TE!
Une étonnante photo de ce "couple" très particulier. Un joli moment que tu as saisi là. J'adore la pose et l'expression de l'animal.

A simply great and interesting documentary image. The animals look is almost insane and I like the way the boy tenderly holds on to it. Just love all the traditional details like the feathers on his arm and his head dress.
It would be interesting to know the name of this animal?
