Perfect capture. #8196101

Bunny Snow level-deluxe 4/19/2010 7:15:53 AM

Cats absolutely love the perfect shape and size nest for sunbathing and sleeping, as witnessed here.

The textures, lighting, composition, tonality, DOF is wonderfully captured by your lens, Katrina. Good eyes and POV, as always. I suspect another win is on the horizon! Congratulations on your BP POTD! #8548611
