"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."

You made that superb cat like the big star of the next Walt Disney ! ;) What a funny big presence with those green snaky-like eyes ! But i'm sure Cicy must be a beautiful & adorable cat in real life. Super pp and great fluffy close-up of the King (or maybe Queen, sorry i don't know if Cicy is a male or a female name. Btw, does Cicy means something ?)

12 Mar 2010 7:45am

@k@: thanks Karine . Cicy is beautiful girl with amazing green eyes in real too. Cica or Maca is a common name for cats in Yugoslavia, so that is why I call my cat - Cicy ( with little bit of english version )

NANNE from DAMWOUDE, Netherlands

Wauw, MARIANA, real nice cat!

MARIANA, if you go on my site to the words "Beleef de Lente" , you will be able to open a link with 8 cams. In this way it's possible to watch live in their nests for you and your visitors.
