Tube, using a 580 EX flash on Ettl- +2/3. hope you like. http://i.pbase.com/o4/43/592743/1/...

Reminds me of my old tomcat when he would catch a mouse and bring it to me to show. Beautiful shot Rick. :D You are right, I had a cat like that once as well, he would bring it right to the doorstep all proud and everything. Thanks for the extremely kind words on this one.
