EFRC pix
I did manage to take a few pictures at EFRC today.  I got a few shots of cats I don't usually photograph.

Here is the required picture of India.  She wasn't posing well today, so you get a closeup of her eye.

This is Rocky, the young bobcat who was in the house until recently.

This is Maggie, an elderly lioness.  Maggie is half blind and somewhat erratic.  She can seem friendly, but she's actually quite aggressive.

In the foreground is Achia, the most beautiful cougar I know.  She'd look prettier if she weren't glaring at the camera.  In the background, you can see Tasha in the next cage getting a drink.

This is either Lea or Nala -- I can't tell them apart.

Wedge in front and Rake in back.  This is the same cage as the previous shot -- Rake makes live miserable for four lionesses.

Big Boy lounging in his box.  There was very little light for this shot.  All hail image stabilization and ISO 3200; it's not a great photo but you can see him.

Kisa, Max's cage mate.  I don't get many pictures of Kisa or get to spend time with her because Max hates me.

I don't take very many pictures of my Raja Baby because he likes me too much -- for good pictures you need the cat to stay well away from the fence.  This is a poor photo, but I thought I'd post it anyway, since I'm always talking about him but don't show many pictures.

Actually, the picture of Big Boy is very moody. Try cropping out the very bright posts around the outer edges of the frame.

I agree with Gretchen; I quite like the photo of Big Boy.

Drat! After my funds got unencumbered at OVFF, I forgot that I had wanted to buy a calendar from you.

I hope that little stuffed Ratatouille wasn't more distracting than I meant her to be during the first verse of "Swing the Cat" at the Dead Dog Filk.

I'll have calendars at Windycon and Chambanacon, if you can be there or have someone pick one up. Or you can get them on line.

Ratatouille was no problem. The problem I had was that my fingerpicks were falling off; I actually lost two during the song.

Why thank you. I love love LOVE my tigers.

I apologize for being perpetually confused about names and identities and such. You are the person sharing Debbie's house with the cute dogs?

The more I look at it, the more I do too. I was a little frustrated when I took it because she was right by the fence where I couldn't take anything but an extreme closeup without getting the fence. But eventually I figured out that this way I got a shot I haven't already taken a dozen times before. Somehow in this shot my sweet gentle little girl seems more like a TIGER, not threatening but more impressive rather than awww-inspiring.
