This evening looking for an owl or hawk to shoot, the only productive shots were of these young stray cats that hang out by the boat landing.
All shot with D3, 120-300 2.8 and the 2x tc. Thanks for viewing.

Levon,
thats Lake Martin, which at one time was extremely popular for its rookery which is pretty much non existent as of today. At the boat launch there is an old boat shed probably for WL&F Dept and thats where the kitties hang out.
Thanks for viewing and the kind words.

Fellas and Dianne,
thanks for stopping by, viewing and the kind words, yes, there is always a fresh litter of kittens out there, I believe they feed off what the locals throw to them. Its particularly sad in the wintertime. These are wild cats and you couldn't get near 30 feet of one even if you had food in your hand. I have a preference for the last one, due to the composition/framing. They definately have a different look/feel to them compared to the domestic cats we are always posting.

Angela,
well sometimes people will drop off litters of kittens and even litters of puppy dogs. I'm sure between alligators and the wild animals at night have a feeding frenzy of sorts. We do have dogs down here known as coydogs, half coyote and half domestic dog.
Thanks for viewing,
