#232-365 Photograph

I had been out trying to get some unusual shots of Lorikeets, when I snapped this, (What an imagination, how would I focus while fleeing in terror?)

This is a shot taken from my lounge chair of an Animal Planet Documentary called Big Cat Diary, on the Animal Planet Channel of our cable channel Foxtel. I was just experimenting with the setting for in door shooting and took a snap of a cheetah in full flight that alas was too effected by the camera (and my perhaps) motion blur to be of any good.

So I kept trying and got this snap of a Leopard well disguised in the undergrowth, I am surprised at the lifelike appearance I achieved with this and tomorrows posting of Power.

You had me believing that you shot that cat outside your home! I'm gullible, can you tell? What a great shot, even if it was from the comfort of your own home!

Wow, that has amazing clarity. You must have a very good television set.

Now that is my kind of shooting, lazy boy and a remote! Fun!

And here I was thinking that creature had eaten all the Lorikeets leaving you with nothing to shoot. Creative capture!
