Equal time for Ernie

Ernie on the couch

A while back I posted a shot of our cat Bert in a dresser drawer, so I thought I’d give belated equal time to our our cat Ernie. Bert and Ernie are allegedly from the same litter, but we don’t know anything about the parents so have to wonder. They are quite similar in many ways, and completely different in so many others. Ernie is more “clingy” and want to spend a lot of time on my lap – here he was content to share the couch with me while I used a pillow to protect my space.

I avoid flash as much as possible, so I grabbed my fastest lens (a great used purchase over 15 years ago) and upped the ISO for this natural light only shot.

Taken 7/4/08, Nikon D200, Nikkor 50/1.8 AF, ISO 640, 1/20th second at f/2.8.



  1. Oh, Rich. I was browsing thru ICANHAZCHEEZBURGER.COM in NetNewsLite and didn’t realize for a second that I’d changed to your blog. I thought “What’s Ernie doing on LOLCATS?” Wait…

    Cats all have their own personalities, and don’t get enough credit for that… you have a nice touch for portraits of them.

  2. He’s beautiful, Rich. I love their names, too!! We had a couple of Lovebirds in the yard that we affectionately named George and Gracie!! Fabulous photo, as usual…
