Fishing Cat

By Lillian  
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

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!

O v1 is a bute, Lillian, the wet look is amazing such detail well composed with eyes to die for.

What fabulous concentration on its face - ears back, paw paused in the air, momentarily. It's hard work to get a meal!

I love this shot of it coming out of the water. So unusual to see, and a fabulous image. Smile

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.

That intense gaze, paw in the air ready to move!!! Well captured Lillian.
The intense expression is heightened by the selective focus processing, nicely done Lillian.
