Weekly Photo Challenge: Close

by Andrea O'Connell

This week the photo challenge word is close.  I’ve chosen to use “close” as in close-up, or macro photography.  I shot this last week:

This is my cat, Beau.  I love his eyes!  He’s jet-black with white whiskers!  When I can get him to sit still or wake up, he’s a good subject:

    Those eyes are stunning! I love how his black fur is so shiny. The photo makes it looks so soft. This is excellent!

        LOL! Thanks for the link – your pup is a doll! And, you’re right, he does look kind of menacing, but in truth, he’s the dearest most docile cat – well, except when he’s hungry, then he’s in my face and relentlessly purr-full and pushy!
