Check it out, this photo just earned me a 'Mark of Excellence' in the the first 3-month I SHOT IT Cat Photo Competition of 2012!

http://i-shot-it.com/competition.php?id=4f4651ad73262

"This image was taken of my cat, Neelix, the first week he and his sister were brought home shortly after moving from New York to Texas. He is laying on a blanket draped over the hard top from my Miata (yes, inside the apartment, not much storage space), finally taking a nap after a long play session. Camera was an Olympus E-520 with the Olympus 14-42mm kit lens, and Olympus FL-36 flash diffused and bounced off of the ceiling. Some post processing in Lightroom3 to correct white balance, boost sharpness and clarity in his fur, and to bring out the gold in his eyes and the bell on his collar. He is growing up now and thinks he is a dog."

Congrats! That's a cool photo. Just don't dress them up in silly costumes and take photos or the PETA people will beat your ass!

Another brick in the wall.

Another butterfly (or moth? does anyone know??) on the laundry building for my side of the apartment complex. Pentax K-7 and Quantaray 70-300mm f/4-5.6 in direct sunlight, about 2 feet away.

It's #macromonday in Europe right now, though this might not technically be macro, I'm not sure. #insectphotography #naturephotography #butterfly

This is pretty cool, I like how you can see the texture of the wall, and start to understand how they can cling upside-down like that. I have some photos I took of a hummingbird moth, weirdest insect I ever saw!

"Come no closer to this tree.." This little guy just would not cooperate - No matter where I went, he kept himself between me and the sun, or just stayed in the shadows so I couldn't get a clean shot of him. Proper exposure for his body blew everything else out into highlights and purple fringing, so I tried exposing for the sky instead and got this cool silhouette. I'm assuming he has a nest in this tree because he didn't leave it, even when I got pretty close. Taken while while standing on the top of the second floor stairwell of an apartment building about 50-75 feet from the tree at about 3PM, no clouds, very harsh light, with: Pentax K-7 Quantaray 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 #cardinal #cardinals #bird #birdphotograph #birdphotography #photography #pentax #pentaxk7 #silhouette I guess I'm still a little early for #silhouettethursday #sillhouettesonthursday but it should fit #wildlifewednesday #wildlifephotography

Cool photos! I heard a Mazerati today and it scared the hell out of me. Then I blew past it in my Fiat...

Wish I could have gotten a bit more DOF with this shot, but in the sunlight on the LCD, it looked like I had gotten him all in focus. I managed to get the eyes/proboscis thing in focus, so I still like it.

Pentax K-7 and Quantaray 70-300mm f/4-5.6 in direct sunlight, about 1.5 feet away.

A bee on a tiny white flower. Taken from about 2 feet away in direct sunlight with a Pentax K-7 and Quantaray 70-300mm f/4-5.6.

Terrible picture (my first time shooting 35mm film), but it's too funny not to share. This is my cat Neelix's solution to seeing over the bushes outside my living room window. I have to say I'm really impressed with them; yesterday I caught his sister walking balanced on the tiny ledge where his front paws are in this picture. Sadly, she jumped (or fell?) off before I could reach my camera. #funnycats #cat #catphotography

Your cats are hilarious! They're like an acrobatic troupe... So you've gone into film territory now?

I got some comments and criticism on the original version of this, so I tried to update it to make the suggested improvements.
