Oh, Basil.....

A week or two ago when I was out taking pictures of spring blooms and foliage Basil decided he needed to follow me around. He finally jumped up on an old weathered adirondack chair and decided to get all cute for the camera. What follows is the series of photos I managed to take. As soon as I'd get the camera focused he would move before I could get the shutter snapped so I didn't get as many candid shots as I'd have liked.

He'd had enough by that last picture and wandered off..... until I made my way inside, by then he was hoping it was feeding time.

    I'm not sure whether you camera has manual focus options. If so set to approx distance, 3 ft or whatever. Go to flash mode and turn off the flash. Now it should "click" nearly instantaneously

  2. Great photos of Basil. By his expression it looks like he's just tempting you to take his pic, so he can move when you click. Cats are like that...perfect timing. And it's always good to toy with the humans! :)

    He's a gorgeous fellow.
