Q: I've noticed that five of my uploads have " Hot" in front of the caption. Why are they caterogized that way ?

A: Do you know?

I had just finished taking some indoor pictures in Low light when I went out into the bright sun and saw these two cats, ahem, in the heat of the moment, heeding their, ahem, "call of nature".

Excitedly, I took out my camera, changed to my 75-300 zoom and shot away, ahem, like what the black cat was doing. I managed just two shots before someone walked near and the cats, ahem, disengaged and scooted away.

I looked at my shots. They were way over-exposed and blur with camera shake. The pixs were taken in very bight daylight at ISO 1000, f5.6. 1/40 second. Fortunately, they were shot in RAW and I could recover the image somewhat.

Looking at the image again, I think the camera shake adds to a sense of action, excitement and mystery :)
