I see a rather sad and pensive ("melancholy"), solitary creature. He appears to be very young (a "baby"). Or, perhaps, he is just from a child-like species (like a muppet). Or he is so elderly that, here at the end of his days, he once again appears child-like.
Anyway, his tired, but pleading eyes are looking right at me.
Of course, I spent a while with him during the photo shoot, trying to get the right camera angle and waiting for the sun to come out on that partly cloudy day in order to get better shadows and more detailed texture. And between post-processing and blogging, I've stared at him a lot... and he in turn back at me.
