Thanks Melissa, Judi, Ann and Dominick. This was a farm kitten that was a little shy, but playful none the less. The extra reach I had with my 100-400mm lens made the difference. Thanks for taking time to comment!

Best Regards,

Thanks Kumiko, Marijana, Dianna, Liz and Anne!

Kumiko - you asked how I was able to get this shot. This was a farm kitten and was a little apprehensive of people. When it was trying to hide on this deck, I made scratching noises on the wood to draw the attention of the kitten and clicked away.

Thanks again for taking time to comment.
