I have been trying for a couple of years to get a decent shot of my cat (Meara). IT is almost as though she knows and moves too close, or turns away! This evening I think that she was just too lazy to do either. She was lying on the rug and plopped down in front of her and took a few, (yeah, she let me take several). This not "exactly" what I wanted, but I settled since it is rare that I get anything in focus without her moving. Hopefully I will get a lot of pet pictures in this years PaD,if not mine, pets of friends or even strangers!
