Wow, the detail here is incredible, it feels as if I'm there. The fuzz, the claws, wow!

A question if I may, was this taken in the early morning? It feels early morning but I wonder what your thoughts are to lift it a little in post? S-

Ii was taken in the afternoon, per exif at 6:48 pm, however, I may have forgotten to set it for daylight savings so it could have been an hour later. I have reworked and recropped the image. Actually, it is not the same image (but basically identical) since I had bracketed for exposure when I took the photo. I have used the lighter exposure for this edit.
