LOL, I couldn't help myself. I've been wanting to get close up pictures of all of them.

I managed to get some good ones of Czarina and today Vlad.

First three, Czarina.

I love her eyes here. She's the only one that if you look at her in the right light, her eye color looks like that seafoam green.

I think this is my favorite. This is his Clint Eastwood look.

krdahmer, LOL, all he's missing is the 357 Magnum.

Onster, I've been wanting to get close ups of them for a while. I'd like to have osme really nice 8x10 pictures printed so that I can put them on my wall. It's just hard to get them this close up without them moving away or trying to paw at the camera. Hopefully I can get the other three up close and this good.

Czarina's eyes are really quite lovely. It's hard to really see in photo their true color.

Those are great 1st shots of both Czarina :lovestruck: & Vlad :lovestruck:

I have 8x10's of all my present & past pets on the walls of my apartment, it's a wonderful tribute to see each day :) The photos I picked were ones that really showed there purrsonalites :cat: :dog:

My mum's Tortie, also a lighter colour like Czarina (as opposed to Duffy who has more black on her), has very similar coloured eyes - that colour really shows in natural light/outside. Duffy's are a mix of green & yellow :D

What beauties Czarina and Vlad are. Love the eyes of both - specially the 2nd and 3rd pics, so deep in thought! That is a cracking pic of Vlad in the last one! What a gorgeous face.

14+, I don't think I'd be done by Christmas. I think I'd be chasing kitties down until Valentines day. :D

Growler, it's a hard color to describe, but you are right, you can really see the hue better in natural light and outside. Her eyes were what really first made me curious about her.

Brandykins, thank you. I especially love that last picture of Vlad too.

Close ups are tricky, I find, especially since my place doesn't get a lot of natural light, and so the flash causes either glowy eyes or closed ones. Plus my guys don't like to pose - or, they will, until I press the trigger - then they'll look away every time :frustrated: :laughing:

I think Czarina looks a bit like a muppet in the first pic :laughing: Makes me want to pick her up and squeeze her.. :lovestruck:

Yeah, I had to take those while there was still enough light to not use the flash. Mine don't post very well either. I won't tell you how many I had to take just to get those. :laughing:

Czarina reminds me of a muppet too. There's just something about her cute face.:lovestruck:
