Rescue cat

My rescue cat - Charlie

Earlier this year I rescued a cat from B.A.R.K that was brought there a stray.  I'm not sure how long he was there but I don't think it was that long.
  Before we got Charlie I must admit I was not a cat person, in truth I'm still not, but he is quite a character and I have grown to love and trust him.  He in turn has learnt to trust us - its quite clear he has been mistreated in his past but he's slowly learning to trust.

Heres some pictures that I have taken of him.

Heres a link to B.A.R.K where we got charlie from - it would be great if you could have a look at it -

Springtime means little lambs

We all now that springtime means little lambs popping up all over the countryside.  Even though they may be shy they are curious creatures and photographing them is a bit difficult but here are the best shots.

Photos from Edinburgh Zoo

Some people find it hard to take stunning photos at the zoo but if you position you camera correctly then the photos will turn out perfect.  Here are a few tips; enclosures that have a glass/plastic screen you need to put your camera lens as close to the glass as you possibly can (this means that your camera will focus not on the dirt on the glass but on what lies past it) but I would say to rule these enclosures out for achieving great shots, when enclosures have a wire mesh fence you have to place your camera lens in the mesh so that the mesh is not a part of the photo creating the illusion that you are in there with the animals (these enclosures will get the best quality snaps)  and finally I would say not only to take photos of the animals but think about your surroundings.

Here are some photos I took at Edinburgh Zoo.
