Top Cat!

by matwhittington

There has been a succession of dull dull days round my neck of the woods. Quite uninspiring. However in a very brief sunbeam this morning I snapped a few shots of the neighbourhood top cat through the kitchen window. He's a handsome beast, but I think also the reason I never get any birds in my garden...

Lovely composition, but it seems a bit blocky? Is this a very heavy crop?

Thanks - yeah it's a pretty heavy crop. I would say this is about 1/20th of the image 'as taken'. Alas I couldn't get any closer because I knew that if I opened the kitchen door the cat would have hopped it...
