    I was walking along this trail at a Bird Sanctuary and came across this pretty kitty. I got 21 shots total!

    Whoa! What a surprise that must have been. And a thrill! I'd probably have been shaking too much with excitement to get any shots. You did well :thumbup:

    Great shot. I'll bet that shot made you all tingly in your nether realms.

    Have Fun,
    Jeff

    That is an awesome capture, congrats!! I think I would of crapped my pants. What focal lenght did you use?

    I love how you can see the detail in his fur and in his muscles. These animals are amazing, and your photo captured that. I love the "pose" as well, good job on waiting for the right moment.

    Do you have any more?

    She is looking at me on this photo. I'm not sure what you mean. Her eyes are in the shadow being the sun was back lit. So I suppose it's hard to tell.

    Most of the photos are the same. She only stayed for a few seconds.

    The last three photos are full framed shots. I shot with a Nikon 300mm ED IF F4.5 Lens.
    It's a Manual Focus lens only. So that is why it is extra special to me. I really like that lens. I can good detail out of that old puppy.
