    Thanks, @Albertine …yes…you’re right…it all happened very fast. I was walking out the back door when I spotted Cisco and the vole staring at each other from a little farther apart. Luckily, my camera was just inside within reach and I quickly changed lenses to use my telephoto and began firing off a few shots. Cisco is still a kitten -…[Read more]

    A late March snowstorm gave me one last chance to take photos of Cisco in the snow. Next month we are moving to Florida and this “kitten” will never see snow again!

    @bugadrienne ….thanks :)

    I need to practice that too! It’s not easy to keep the focus sharp when he’s on the move. I have been trying to get some advice on how to capture him in clear focus when he’s running…especially towards me. I use AI Servo mode and a fast shutter speed…but it’s not that easy. If anyone has suggestions, I’d love…[Read more]

    Thanks @dchester1001 … I totally agree… since I take photos of my cat almost every day… but I hope @tomdinning isn’t listening in…we all know how he feels about cats! hahaha Haven’t seen him on the forums recently…maybe this will bring him out of hiding. :)Check It Out

    @bugadrienne … thanks for the compliment to you too! Now, you’re asking for it…because I take pictures of my cat almost every day and I could deluge your thread!!! hahaha …I’ll try to refrain but will add a few of my faves. :)

    A wonderful photo of this magnificent bird…congrats @markapaulson …well deserved award.

    These birds have appeared in our area of Upstate NY this winter too and the photographers are going crazy!!

    I have been lucky to have seen one of them and taken a few photos…but none in flight and not able to get close enough the second time. So…[Read more]

    Lovely view!!! …and yes…dramatic colour! Great images @yarnfly

    This would actually make a great THROW DOWN – what do other people see when they look out their backdoor…could be very interesting to see how creative we can get showing off our turf. :)Check It Out

    OK…I want Spring to really arrive so badly that I’ve taken to looking at photos I took last year…for some solace and hope that it will come again. These were all taken in May last year at Sodus Bay on Lake Ontario in Upstate, NY and are the things I love about Spring there:

    @admin …I fear you are right. We are trying to keep track of him outside and usually go out with him…so birds are scared off…but I don’t think that’s going to last forever. He’s already started to explore the woods and his natural hunting instinct is pretty strong.

    @tersha … thanks… he always looks ready for action… it’s high…[Read more]

    Spring Is In The AirIt’s a cold March day, as winter weather lingers but the first few days of Spring have Cisco feeling the changing season and dreaming of the possibilities for new adventure.
