Trying out the new Nikkor 105 mm macro lens. Never let a photo opportunity go to waste – thank you to Marney, my brother-in-law’s cat who graciously plonked herself on the table in front of me during a recent visit. Always after attention – its hard work for a girl who has seven other cats in the house to compete with. She’s a star now … or at least her paws are!

Taken with the Nikon D700, Nikkor 105 mm macro lens at 105 mm, F7.1, 1/20 sec, ISO 400, -1.0 bias, hand held in the blink of an eye!

I love the challenge of capturing what I see, admire and love. To share it with you is an added bonus. Photography to me is recording history. Please explore my galleries and enjoy♥
