Cat Portraits

Of all my photographic subjects I find wild birds and cat portraits the most challenging!  My access to wild birds is either in my backyard or a field trip away  But for cat portraits I’m fortunate to be owned by an orange tabby cat by the name of Buster.  Buster is a most photogenic cat and for the most part cooperative. Buster spends his days in my office at the window hunting the birds that frequent the nearby water fountain.  I call this Buster’s bird TV.

  Last Winter I took two trips to see the Sand-hill Cranes. The migrate each fall and spend the fall and winter in Wilcox Arizona. They leave for their northern breeding grounds in early April.
