Dan J. Holm 8/18/2004 12:36:24 AM

So as he has his claws dug into your leg you had the presence of mind to snap this shot? ... Very impressive, Janell! ... This is a teriffic capture! Well done! #718391

Janelle Barry 8/18/2004 2:01:28 AM

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!) #718440

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! #755871

Thanks, Mary! Technically it lacks a bit, but it definitely has character! #761331

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! #918949

Description

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.
