Mea Culpa! I took this with my DSLR, a Nikon D40. But it was in my hands! You see, I was researching by trial and error the apertures and shutter speeds I have available on the D40 when Orphan (the stray we're trying to take in and get to accept/be accepted by our two established cats) followed me into the family room. The other armchair growled and hissed at him. He half-crawled under it, decided it wasn't worth the danger when the noise level rose, and lay down and posed in front of the fireplace. Moving slowly so as not to attract his attention, I put the diffuser on the new speedlight for the first time and used the flash for the second time.

His eyes are kind of glassy, but it's the best shot I've ever taken with a flash (also the first non-built-in-flash I've ever used.) I'm posting him in color on the Kitty Cats thread, too!
