So some proud photographer parents pose their two or three year olds with super-telephoto lenses, showing how the lens is taller than the kid. I thought it’d be fun to pose our new kitten in the Beast’s lens hood. I figured he’d be so cute sitting inside it, and I’d look back in a few months and wonder, “Did he ever really fit inside there?”

Reality check…Rich put Whiskey in the hood, Whiskey hopped out. Over and over and over. Whiskey says kittens are not models and they do not pose! So we manipulated him and put some kitten food at the bottom of the hood. Suddenly the hood had his undivided attention… Let the animated GIF below play for a few seconds.



It’s amazing how much our little “hoodlum” has grown already!
