Caught in the act

Caught in the act

I snuck the camera into the entry and managed to catch Sahraa on her favorite setee, which she refuses to use with a towel on it as protection against all the dirt she gets on it. So we leave it off. Being as camera shy as she is, within seconds she vacated the scene (see next image http://www.pbase.com/image/147977649).

There was no alternative route open to this princess, I can read her mind from such expression on her face, but she just showed us how adorable she is! This portrait can be an advertising for pets 'I would not take a shower'. BV

She has wonderful taste. "Why use a towel when I have the best there is?" Great shot Helen V

Maybe a long telephoto lens would not disturb her?
