Torties are one of the trickiest kittens to photograph. I focus manually with my camera, and usually on the nose with most shots, so unless they have a strong, contrasting splotch, it's hard to focus sharply on a nose in the blended mix of a tortie's face.
Our little Dinah is a squirmy one, which makes it that much more challenging!
But yesterday, after much trial, error and wasted, blurry photographs, I did actually get a few shots of the girl -- in focus.
So, for those of you asking for more Dinah, well, here you go!
Her eyes have changed a lot in the past week --- they've turned from "kitten blue" to a golden-green. And those little hearts about her eyes are starting to get a little more defined.
She's complex and funny mix of bossy and needy. She's high-spirited and playful and can dominate the playground at times, but once she uses that last burst of kitten energy, she needs some cuddling, and snuggles up with a sibling or human and will purr herself to sleep.
She's a character and a delight.
