Grab shot of baby Bamboo as he jumped from the coffee table to my lap and didn't quite stick; he was hanging on my pants, barely, by the skin of his claws. Canon 35-105 zoom lens, probably somewhere in the middle, and Canon 540 EZ flash. Photo reworked.

Thanks for your complimentary feedback, Isabel and Dan! I'll have to admit though that my presence of mind wasn't all that great. I was already sitting on the couch with camera in hand, taking pictures of Bamboo on the table while I was nursing a broken ankle. He snagged my clothes but not my leg (or I might never have gotten this!)

Wow - I guess these got away from me! Thank you so much - Cindy, Carolyn, Carrie and Katrina - for your kind comments. I really appreciate your taking the time to respond to this photo. While I was disappointed at the shadow in Bamboo's mouth, I didn't have any time to plan out a better exposure - I was totally on auto-react. But while it's not technically the greatest, the expression really said it all! Thanks again!

Thanks, Mary! Technically it lacks a bit, but it definitely has character!

Yes, what a face. He would be embarrassed to see it now, cool cat that he is - but he was a riot as a kitten! Thanks for commenting!
