One from a while ago that I hadn't done anything with, up until yesterday Smile Obviously taken through the bars of her cage, much as I would love to get closer to her I am not that daft, although some might say I am lol

Thank you all so much for all your C&C's very much appreciated, a special thank you to Carol (Caziwinkles ) for her much appreciated and valued UA on my image yesterday.

Thank for taking the time to look

Hugh

Great close up of this beautiful animal, she looks pretty serious, not one to play with I would think

This is a wonderful portrait. I respond strongly to photos like this--they really are portraits. And I do them when I can, as well.

Lovely contrast with the white whiskers against her darker face, Hugh. Nicely captured through the bars.
