You are so right, Crystal. I told Joan and Laurie that I've discovered the secret to capturing an in-flight photo.....ESP. You have to "just know" when it is the perfect time to trip the shutter.

Or have a moment of pure, dumb luck, which is exactly the case here! LOL!

That is the most amazing picture. My camera also has a delay. I have tried so many times to get Katie in flight but I end up with a disk full of the curtains, countertops, ceiling, etc. You get the picture. I guess it is professionial photography or like you said PURE LUCK!!! :lol:

Thanks so much, Everyone! Yep, Katie, it was certainly one of my most coveted photos - the other is a great shot of the stretch-and-yawn. When I finally get that one, I will be SO happy!

And, definitely, Cathy - if there had been anyone in the bedroom but me, I would have named that picture Faun Attacks!

Moomins, "Faun" is actually a male fairy who has the short tail of a deer (sort of similar to a Satyr) and since my Faun was a rehab baby who came to me with a severly broken tail that he eventually lost the last third of - that's where his name came from! I was trying to give everyone fairy names, because that's what these little creatures remind me of, so I have Finn (Finvarra, king of the fairies), Baz (Basadone, Italian fairy who is called "the woman kisser"), Willow and Ivy (fairy plants/trees).....but I was running out of fairy names - so I also have two who are as yet nameless! Isn't that awful??? Dennis asked me why I didn't have one named Bruce since I was giving them all fairy names - :roll:

Oh Leah what a beautiful picture. I tried to get one of Mr. Whiskers and all I got was him jumping and his little "wings" were not out yet. It is so funny looking . Like he is diving. Good luck now with the last picture. I know you will get it. :)

[quote="Leah"] ... I was trying to give everyone fairy names, because that's what these little creatures remind me of

The source of the saying "Knock on Wood" come from the belief that when people tapped on trees in "the olden days", fairies flew out and brought them good luck. But, we know who the fairies really were don't we? :angel13:

Leah that picture is great. I am green with envy. Most of the time I try to get pics of the fur ball all I get is a tail. Love it!!!
