This is the only shot I have of Tipper ...at least where he isn't running off. I very disappointed with the blown white of his coat, but otherwise fairly happy with this shot. With him being my favorite of the feral ranch cats I will continue to try and get a better shot of him.

It is not a bad shot. Feral's are really wild animals and they think that you might try to kill them, How far away were you?

whaas2 - I am not sure how far away I was, but I was much closer than I usually get. I do know I had a zoom lens. Tipper is definitely feral and not a pet. I am all to familiar with feral cats. There are several at the ranch and unfortunately there are a few at the restaurant where I work. These are not strays. One of the 4-5 month old kittens at the restaurant looks as though it was hit by a car or something. His back legs don't work properly and he is badly crippled. Even with his disability I have been unable to catch and/or trap him. He is too street smart to fall for a HaveAheart live trap. I understand that the vet would more than likely just put him down, but I believe that is kinder than a life filled with pain and suffering.

Tipper is a handsome fella and I hate that the faral cats have such a short life span.
