It's not bad, but I agree that it's not as creative as your other work. I agree with the other who said on your journal... dig deeper... For example, your self-portraits are an abstraction of reality... you never take direct, head-on "portrait" shots. They are always emotive. Granted, it is difficult to coax this out of an animal, you may need to take many shots while waiting for the moment to occur, BUT I think you can do it -- it is a beautiful animal and has a very regal attitude. I am sure there is something more there to be captured.
