A pity that we can't see him move. Looks as if he greets us by his thumb. OK, thanks for the encouragement, Dimitri and dancer!

Even his shadow looks happy. A wonderful capture of his happy world. I like Helen's comment and link, I did check it out. You added fur to the trim of your hood.
Keep on dancing and clicking.
