This is our other cat Fizz.

She used to belong to my wife's friend but was being bullied by other cats so we now look after her.

She was laying at the top of the stairs with her head resting on her paws so I grabbed my camera and decided to zoom in so I could get rid of the background.

I focused on her eyes which turned out well although at maximum zoom on my kit lens her nose went slightly out of focus.

I am going to get a prime lens which will be much better for cat portraits but I quite like the photo so thought I would share it with all of you.

The eyes really stand out. Well done for going in so close, it creates a bold statement.
