Hello TL Members:

After posting my first TL photo, of Hemi stretching, I went through all of my archives of photos of his brother, Fitzi. I found a couple of possible photos, but nothing that I thought is of the same appeal as Hemi's shot. So, I decided to take a portrait of Fitzi this morning. I wanted to use natural light, so that I wouldn't do anything to the color of his lovely eyes. As it turned out, the best shot I took only shows one of his eyes clearly. Since my shooting position was over near the window, and since Fitzi had climbed up on the cat tree to look out the window, my portrait became more of a profile. But, I think that it still shows Fitzi's features and fur very nicely. I used ISO 800 on this one, which is no challenge at all for the D300. Since my 105mm has VR, my shutter speed of 1/100 seemed adequate.

So, Fitzi can relax. His brother is not the only kitty in the house that has been given special attention on TL.

I hope that you enjoy this Portrait of Fitzi, one of our two very special kitties.

Hello John!
Fitzi is a beautiful cat, too! I wait for a picture with both cats together. We have a black cat, too. I love cats!
Excellent portrait and the light is just perfect!
Lovely eyes!
Best regards!

Lovely, can almost hear the chatter of cat looking at a bird out the window. I have given up trying to take good shots with the bigger camera, I get better shots of the cats with my little Canon, it is harder because of the slow reaction time but the pics come out better. Anyway lovely shot of Fitzi and hope to see many more of him too.
