Default Cat image

Hi Merry Christmas to all.
I am spending time in Santa Clara in SF. Took a couple of quick image of my daughter's cat with 200mm & Zenitar
I hope I can take images of some hummingbirds as I can hear them around even though I did not take my 300mm lens in this trip

The cat is too overweight to catch a humming bird

The cat looks like she just finished a meal. Maybe she very often just finished a meal? Great images, Daniel!
But how can you go for a holiday trip without bringing your 300mm???!!!!

Great shot, Daniel! The cat is more than content, and I fear not for the neighborhood birds. Have a great season!

Paul, Frogfish

Toronto happens these 2 months not as wintry as it used to be. Quite a change of weather to slightly balmy San Francisco area. Kind of excited to hear humming birds around. See if I can make do with 200mm

Courtesy of the very hectic airport. I flew out from Toronto Dec 21 and the airport was a zoo. My wife's instruction was that no luggage was allowed (only handheld). So I really have to scale down my gears.
