    I see her thus every day staring at me from the sink, waiting for me to run her some fresh water; she likes drinking from the tap.
    I have tried to catch her so with long lenses or zooms, afraid to disturb her.
    Today I bravely picked up my e510 and 25 normal lens and walked up and took this.
    Sometimes zooming with ones feet is the best path :)

    Nice and sharp in all the right places. My son's cat is a tap-drinker too.

    I love using the Zuiko 25mm on my E-PL2. It's so quick and easy to pick up, and lets you walk in right where you want to be. :)

    Yup Ned that is the Joy of Pancakes, easy to tote and very non-threatening. On my E-PL1 the 17mm Pancake is my favorite lens!

    Great shot. I've seen our cat drink from the toilet. Likes going through the garbage too. Her name is Grace Kelly. Go figure...

    Lili,

    I love your cat shot! You captured a great expression on a beautiful face. B&W was a great choice for this shot - was it done this way in camera?

    My "Lana" also loves a morning drink from the kitchen sink! Capturing her in the act required a lot tries. This shot was done with an e-520 fitted with an ancient 85mm f/2 OM-Zuiko and a Vivitar 5000 ring flash.


    With best regards,

    George

    That's a cracking photo! Why don't you buy her one of those water dishes with a little waterfall type affair in it, like a running tap but without the wastage.
