As I’m sure you know, taking photos of cats (or indeed, any kind of animal) isn’t easy, because they have an annoying habit of moving, or closing their eyes just when you press the button. Or maybe that’s just our pets. But anyway, I was pretty pleased with these two shots, taken the Christmas before last, and as the theme of this week’s Gallery is ‘eyes’, they seem to fit.
This is Poppy, who we lost last summer. She had the most wonderful yellow-green eyes, and I love this photo because it was taken before she became sick.
And this is Sparta. I love the way the green of her eyes matches the tree and Christmas tree. She hisses when you pick her up but she’s quite affectionate really.
