He's generally good, except when he's not! Happily, he likes me, so as long as I recognise when he's about to bite...

Very nice image Smokey...8-16mm wouldn't be first choice for this purpose but you made it work by isolating it against the bannister.

Thanks! Not my choice either - but if I'd gone to change lenses, the moment would have passed. Like missing recording a video of Smokey imitating a slinky down the stairs.

Thanks Janse! I'll let his slave - er, owner - know that he's very photogenic.
