    And Dipstick stalking a leaf


    Not great this weekend but working all yesterday and leaden skies again today

    I want strong sunlight so I can up the speed of the shutter to get these BIF licked!

    I can't imagine how much nnicer they could be? I can see the feathers... the sunshine on the cat's whiskers...

    Is the poor kitty really called Dipstick?

    Its my lovely super secial Canon 1000-400ef L series - its stunning and wonderful and does 90% of the work for you it is just amazing - pretty sure you could hang a box brownie off the back and it would still produce good results.

    The skies were leadedn all weeekend until about 5 when Dipstick went out to look under the shed thats just gone - I mean its been removed so the new one can be put in - there are holes in the sol so its very interesting to cats - when she was a Kitten she was pretty much white apart rom ginger ears and a clack tail and when she was a little ball it just looked like her tail had been dipped - Disney is her brother so we have Dizzy and Dippy

    Oh and Brit you are correct ;)

    I am now obsessed with DoF now

    Perhaps I should just take apoint and click to Kenya and enjoy it a lot more

    Ah, well that's a better reason for the kitty's name than I was thinking. Here, to call someone dipstick is not a compliment.

    Nor here :D

    I think one of the original dalmation puppies was called Dipstick in the book

    Anyway she is a deeply neurotic cat who it has taken 12 years to coax onto a lap but she finally has which is great pretty sure she was abused before we got her
