There are two Fishing Cats at the WHF in Kent..but not friendly on my day there.

This is one that has been swimming, and has the wet look to himWink was also raining and hand held
and in V2 in the water shaking his head, as could not resist showing you in the water.

Thanks for looking everyone, appreciated

Lillian

Great images. Lillian. Think I May wellhave looked a little like this bringing the wheelie bin down in the wild wind and torrential downpour this afternoon too! Tongue Mind you, your Fishing Cat has a much prettier look and such a cute pink nose!

The look of concentration and sheer determination is wonderful, Lillian!
Spot on focus and excellent use of the f4.5 aperture to give a perfect depth of field for this type of shot.
