    • Dear Julia,
      Thanks so much for your comment & feedback. I try very hard to capture the natural expressions/essence of the animals, without making it too ‘cutsey’ or ‘human-like’…so it made my day to know I was somewhat successful with this shot 🙂 I sincerely look forward to reading more of your beautiful writing and photos.

      Best wishes,
      Takami

      • Takami, you obviously take your time both to get to know the animal and to wait for just the right expressions. This is no easy task and it’s awe inspiring.
        Welcome to my blog as well––thank you for following. I love being able to host you there, sharing words and thoughts. 😊

    • Hello Janice,
      Thank you so much for your amazing comment! It means a lot to know if folks can enjoy some of my photos. Being near/observing the animals brings me so much joy and I’m happy if I can share that moment. I plan to post some more snapshots of the white cubs later this week, so if you have time I hope you’ll stop by again 🙂

      Warm wishes,
      Takami

    • Thank you so much for your comment & for stopping by 🙂 I also wonder what this little guy is dreaming about. As someone else has commented, I suppose I’ll never know what goes on in a cat’s mind 😉 His paws are huge, and is definitely growing into them quickly!

  1. こんにちは。
    わたししも何かを見ているように感じましたが、攻撃的に鋭さを感じませんでした。
    そのまま静かにしていれば寝てしまうかも知れず、夢想で良いのではないかと、改めて思いました。

    • りょうちゃん様☆
      こんにちは。返信が遅れて申し訳ありません。
      よく見るとお母さんの背中も写っています。やっぱり、赤ちゃんはお母さんが近くに居ると安心するものですね(^^)

      • 先日、NHKの朝の放送の中で、埼玉県の動物園で産まれたホワイトタイガーの赤ちゃんのことに触れていました。
        きっとこの子たちのことだと思いながら見ました。
        無事に大きく成長して欲しいですね。

        • おはようございます。はい、そうです!この子たちです!野生動物(特にネコ科)の成長は本当に早いですね。私も無事な成長を祈りながらまた会いに行きたいと思います。楽しみです(^^)

    • Many thanks! 🙂
      I’ve observed that after going through my reader and pressing a certain number of ‘likes’ – my ‘like’ button suddenly stops working. I have to log out, clear my web history and then log in again. Isn’t that strange…? 😀

  2. I just love this photo, Takami! It really does look like he’s daydreaming, 🙂 There’s a term, I don’t know if you’ve heard of it, called a “brown study,” when a person stares off into the distance — well, this reminds me of that. Thank you, terrific photograph! Such a tender face.

    • I’m glad you like it Deb! ❤ I haven't heard of the term "brown study" before, so I'll be sure to look into it. This photo was shot on the same day as the 'cubs trio' snapshot from last week. I always find it amazing how they can look like 'kids' in one photo and 'almost like an adult' in another 😀

    • Good morning my friend ❤
      Thanks so much for your lovely comment. I love moments like this – when we can all take a moment to 'relax' and be in the moment. I hope you're having a lovely week!

    • Thank you Indah! As always, you’re too kind ❤ I envy this little cub, he can daydream and play and simply follow his instincts. Of course, even cubs must grow up. But, I'm sure he & his brothers will have many adventures before then 😀

    • Hello Randall, thanks a lot for stopping by! ‘Sigh’ is correct! Today was the last day of the ‘Golden Week’ holidays, and it’s back to the daily grind tomorrow 😦 Well, at least Spring is here, and we can look forward to making photos 😉 Hopefully, I’ll have a chance to visit the cubs again soon. They grow so quickly, and I never get tired of watching them 🙂

      こんばんは。ゴールデンウィークあっという間に終わってしまいましたね(><)コメント、ありがとうございます。確かに、兄弟を狙っていたところだったと思います。ご指摘の通り「夢想」ではなく、「狩り→ストーキング」の最中だったんです。参りました!m(__)m

    • Yes, I believe you’re right! Now that I recall, his brother may have been passing by while I was ‘focusing’ on him. Therefore, he was definitely up to something…probably not ‘daydreaming’ – hahaha! 😀
