Camera Critters

Our lovely hostess for Camera Critters is Misty.

Be sure you go and visit the other critters!



Tiger


Lovely young lady, isn't she?
All of these shots were taken at the February Photography Morning at the Houston Zoo.


Tiger



She posed for a long time.
I think she thought we were all nuts!
But then, she is a thing of beauty.


 Tiger and Reflection


The reflection is one of our favorite shots.
A portrait of two ladies.

Happy Critter Day!

She is a beauty and seems to enjoy being the center of attention. Wouldn't it be nice to be so unselfconscious?!

Cats are so elegant and so regal no matter what size they are.

I'm on a little blog break but had to stop by and see you. So glad Mr Dragon is at home now. I'm sure that makes all the difference.

Really beautiful and majestic. Thanks for sharing with us. Happy Spring! :)

dosfishes said...

Wow she is gorgeous. I don't think your other kitties would welcome her though! Thanks for sharing. Hope Mr. Dragon is home, if not by now, soon.

Snap: I thought there was a glass in the other shots, but the two of you really gave it away.

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!

I was amazed at how the animals all seemed to post the last time we went to the zoo. I guess they're used to people pointing cameras at them, and they know they're gorgeous.

Hi Snap, I seem to be missing your posts. I think blogger doesn't like me. Love your beautiful tiger. I am very happy that Mr. Dragon is home. I didn't know he was in the hospital until now. I've gone all the way back to Feb.14th. I certainly would have written sooner. I hope all is going well and I hold you both in my prayers and thoughts. Sharon

I have always thought tigers were such amazing creatures. I have always wanted to pet one but I don't think I am brave enough. She is Gorgeous! I have been to the Houston Zoo. It is so fun.

What a Pretty Kitty! "Meow"

Since childhood I've held admiration and awe for big cats. This one's a beaut. Love that last shot with her paws crossed, like she's saying, "Of course you can take my picture, 'cuz I'm beautiful." :)

Hugs,

Kate

A beautiful animal and photographs.

Rosa said...

What a beauty!

Garden Lily said...

On photography morning, do they pose the animals for you? Or do they reward them afterwards for posing so nicely? The shot looks too perfect. What a gorgeous animal.

Irene said...

How did I miss these lovely photos. I've been wanting to paint a big cat, and have not gotten to the zoo. Wonderful.
