Yup -- it's moriarty. :)

I've always wanted to do a cat in a bag shot. But my cats never want me to do a cat in a bag shot!

I put Mo in the bag, and he actually stayed in there for a little over 2 minutes!! I had a chance to take about 15 shots. (using flash with a grid)

Then I put him in the bag, and he was good enough to stay about 1 minute this time!! 7 shots.

The 3 minutes was the longest that I've ever managed for the cat in the bag shot. :)

I did have to fix the lighting a bit in photoshop, because my flash with grid wasn't placed quite right. But it worked pretty well at keeping the light at the cat/bag.

Thanks, Moriarty!!!

And thanks for the wonderful comments! (ummmm... from you people... Mo doesn't say that much... :)

This is my pick for the blue. It's a lovely shot and a great illustration of your cliche. 10

Isn't it great you bring home a new grocery bag and the cats are more excited than if you spent money on a toy!

Very cool! My favorite so far, and probably my favorite cat photo I've seen on this site.
