Flickr a Day 302: National Cat Day

Our selection is quite unplanned and adds yet another feline (I know, I know—too many). Last night, I discovered that Oct. 29, 2015 is the 10th annual National Cat Day, founded by animal welfare advocate Colleen Paige. How then could we not feature furry friends? Previously: Days 3851143201, and 220. My fav is the first of the five: “Master of Venice”, and i wanted to feature something of similar character but couldn’t find it.

Instead, I picked portrait of Maine Coon Lola that Laura Bittner captured on March 18, 2011, using Nikon D60 and 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 lens. Vitals: f/5.3, ISO 320, 1/120 sec, 36.7mm. I love the cat’s expression and eyes of separate colors. The simple composition is perfect. If you like the kitty, there’s a Lola album with 162 more pics.

Laura, who is a registered nurse, joined Flickr in October 2008. Celebrate National Cat Day with some of her other kitty albums: MacguyverNikita, and Whiskey.
