Shedding
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Shedding
Shedding

This little guy is always in one of my wicker chairs on front porch. I go in the afternoon or morning and have a glass of tea and he'll get on top of the chair and just stare at me. We visit everyday. Today I found him shedding so got the camera. I use the 300 mm , F-8 at 1/160 sec, so I could be away from him not to scare him.

Oh, you're gonna have to be VERY kind to this most obliging little fella tomorrow, Diane! :) What a super pose! I've always wanted to catch one of these guys shedding and never have had the luck - nor if I did, I doubt I'd find such a cooperative subject! An excellent capture full of wonderful color, details and gorgeous dof...and a wonderful Gold Win...WTG!!!

Thank you so much Val I think he waits on that chair for me to come out and set with him. He and I just stare at each other and I talk and he turns his head. It is a funny relationship we have.

I know Phyllis, he was just looking at me. He knew I wasn't going to hurt him. We visit every day. When I go out on the porch it is not long until he comes and gets on that chair. Thanks
