I agree with Pat. The subject is nicely sharp while the leaves are blurred leading the eye to it. It's a great touch to have the photograph showing only part of the body since, as Pat says, it gives an idea of sneaking up on it.
Maybe I would have tried to get a little lower, to give sort of a face to face candid. Very Well done!
