EinsteinsGhost - I'm likely partial to cats because I am a cat person but really, this is a great photo. I have always found it difficult to take a picture of my cat without her being too distracted by my camera.

Thank you! I thought the above picture was a nice follow up to a parrot on a couch, with the cat looking at it.

I'd an opportunity to take a bunch of cat pictures last weekend, and did. They made for a challenging subject since the lenses I was using required full manual control and they were more keen on showing off than posing. But, I was patient opportunist... here's another of the shots (a different cat) which I'd posted in another thread last night:


Camera: Sony A55
Lens: Jupiter-37A, 135 mm/f3.5
ISO800, f/3.5, 1/40s, 135 mm (35 mm equivalent: 200 mm)

EinsteinsGhost - That's great. I figure if I keep taking pictures of my cat that she'll eventually get used to the camera and actually allow me to get some decent shots. There are those times that she looks downright adorable and I would love to capture it! By the way, if that a wash basin or water bowl? My cat loves boxes and just about anything she can fit in to lay down in. Great job.

Thanks. That is a plastic bowl on the floor. Here's another (considering that this is one picture/day thread, might as well use a loophole and provide a link to another :P ) the same cat from her "observation tower".
