"A kitten (Old English diminutive of cat) is a juvenile domesticated cat (Felis catus) that is not fully-grown.

The young of big cats are called cubs rather than kittens. Either term may be used for the young of smaller wild felids such as ocelots, caracals, and lynx, but "kitten" is usually more common for these species. Though the term primarily refers to young cats, it can also be used when talking about the young of beavers, hedgehogs, rabbits, rats, skunks and squirrels.".

Hello Bruno!
I love the cats, too!
Wonderful kitten portrait, good detail, nice light and colours!
Lovely green eyes!
Best regards!
Lili

PS - you can see all the cats from my gallery here .

Bela foto, Bruno
Creio que podia ter ficado melhor se com um pouquinho mais de luz - a pesar de que está linda a que incide sobre o focinho que é a referência do foco - estar ótima.
Mas isso é presunção minha.
Parabéns e Axé
Raimundo

Ciao Bruno,


Então esse é o seu pequeno amigo peludo!
Ele está bem preparado e tem um belo bigode, hehehe ...
Amo estes belos olhos verdes, e a definição esta fantástica!
Um belo retrato e bonito pelos!

He has that look of fear when they first start out exploring our world where the least little thing will make him jump.
Fantastic details in this great shot.

OLá Bruno,
Belíssima aproximação nesta composição, o gatinho foi apanhado no momento certo.
Bela definição, gosto da iluminação no nariz. A cor dos olhos soberba, duas esmeraldas.
Excelente trabalho Amigo,

Um abraço fraterno e
Bom Domingo,

Olá Bruno
Nossa quanta nitidez na sua foto. Vê-se com detalhes os pelos, o bigode e passa a sensação de sentirmos e textura deles.
Um belo portrait, e a cor verde dos olhos sobressai bem.
Um grande abraço

Hi Bruno

Effective tight framing on the kitten with good dof & sharpness. Nice warm cold color contrasts netween the cyan eyes, & reddish tinged fur. Tfs!

Your kitten has the most mesmerizing eyes. Your isolated image is sharp and well exposed, and could very well be a movie poster. Regards...Danilo

hello Bruno
this is incredible
wonderful details and great sharpness, wonderful colours and fine details

thanks for sharing this fine image

Oi Bruno!

Essa definição é para humilhar a minha pobre máquina associada a minha abilidade de fotografar. Você realmente é "minha trilha" nas "tentativas" de tirar "fotos". Só não desisto porque sou realmente uma humilde aprendiz ...
O foco no nariz, bigodes e olhos desse gato estão praticamente em 3ª dimensão. Dá para sentir o toque dos pelinhos acima do narizinho rosado dele. Magnífica iluminação.
Abração.
Elisabete

Hi Bruno,
Wonderful portrait of lovely cat...
Nice colours and good details.tfs.
Kind regards,
Vaibhav

Ola dear Bruno
Fantastic close up
What a great eyes!
Excellent details...TFS
Alireza

ciao Bruno,

hmmmmm . . . I want to think this is a "cute" photo, but I keep thinking it's kind of SCARY in this closeup version. Might be nice for Halloween! :O)

Nice details and interesting to read about the various meanings of kitten.

bacio,

Riccardo io

Hello Bruno,

The artist in you has really shone here!
Besides having captured exquisite details of texture and colour, you have cropped and composed this to perfection.
Well done!

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

A very nicely done pet portrait, very sharp and detailed! I like the way youcropped it, hardly cutting the whiskers and cropping high at the head to show mostly the eyes and nose.

This photo is done just right.

Oh wow those eyes!!! This is such a wonderful close up picture you captured here. Very cute kitten and beautiful details. TFS

Ola amico Bruno
What an intense look!...that can be interpreted as fear of a dog or as a momentum of concentration before charging a toy mouse!
Congratulations for the expression of Felis Catus and to your lens for the razor-sharp depiction.
Saudaçoes.
Robert

Ola Bruno!
Que maravilla de gatito!!! Un angel!
La composicion es muy buena y me gusta tu close up asi se admira mejor el triangulo de su carita linda!
Gracias por esta belleza!
