I was just cruising the galleries and found yours. First, this shot is so superb it's practically a sprititual experience just to look at the photo; it must have been incredible to witness it firsthand! Secondly, every photo in your gallery is breathtaking. I wanna be just likeyou when I grow up! Last, where do you shoot the magnificent cats?? Simply awesome.

Wow, thanks for your very kind words, Lee Anne. Many of my cat photos are taken at a local zoo here in NJ. It's called Space Farms Zoo. I also shoot at the Bronx Zoo - NY, Turtle Back Zoo -NJ, and Bergen County Zoological Park - NJ. Thank you again for your comments.
