Absolutely gorgeous, this little kitty is pure energy, inquisitive, and loves to explore its world...I think anyways. Beautiful soft fur, I love the details and the ground compliments with the lovely colors and textures. A FAV for me!

You see thousands of pictures of cats, but this one stands apart from the rest. I love the blue eyes and the blue sky and the lining of the eyes complimenting the vegetation. The kitten is so soft and gentle in appearance and you can see the youthful curiosity in his pose and facial expression. Excellent picture! ?

Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken near my home in Almeria province, Spain
Time
Was one afternoon and the kittens had started to explore in the garden, Pingu decided he would look over a wall covered in the flowers.
Lighting
Thought with the great blue sky, looking up and getting it behind would complement his eye color.
Equipment
Nikon D200 with a Tamron 18-200mm lens.
Inspiration
My love of animals, find them so photogenic.
Editing
Have an old Paintshop Pro, just used a little fill flash to compensate for the sun being almost directly behind the subject.
In my camera bag
I use a Nikon D200, Nikon D300, one lens a Tamron 18-200mm also carry an ols Canon Powershot and sometimes a tripod.
Feedback
When photographing any animal, take your time and wait for them to relax with you. I meet lots of other peoples domestic pets, at first they will either be all over you or very shy and try to hide. Once they relax, that is when I start taking photographs.
