Jimmy is my best friend’s cat and he’s a handful of love! Licking your nose, following you around the yard, playing fetch (Nah, he doesn’t bring things back often but he’ll wait by them until you get there and throw them again!), and letting me photograph him. For macros like this one, Jimmy has let me get as close as touching his eyelashes. If I ever get a camera that can take THAT shot, you’ll see it here first. :-)

    amazing closeup …

    I really need a better camera … I would love to be able to take shots like this …

  • You know, I have a Nikon D80 with multiple lenses for macro and telephoto etc. and I took this shot with a tiny Olympus IR-500 ‘point and shoot’ that captures a shot $2000 in “real” gear couldn’t. You probably have a camera good enough right now but whatever you do, don’t give it away! You’ll kick yourself when you later find out that it ain’t about money and expensive gear! Thanks for the compliments all!

    Beautiful! You have captured the alertness typical of a cat so well.

  • Thanks much. Since this shot, Jimmy got hurt and lost all sight in this eye. It changed colour a bit and the retina is detached, but it’s still beautiful and seemingly just as ‘alert’. :-)
