Kitten At Play




This cute kitten was playing in the driveway when I came upon it. The item getting so much affection was a mouse. I watched for a while and took a few pictures. I was using a Nikon D700 with a 500mm f/4 lens. Barrowed equipment, unfortunately, for the evening. The lens was very heavy but a thrill to shoot with. I poked the lens out the window and used the door as a brace to capture the kitten at play. Setting were f/7.1, 1/2000 of a sec., ISO 200.

Adorable capture of the kitten - I'm truly thankful there isn't one of the mouse after it'd been played with!
