Mom wasn't impressed with this:
It wasn't quite what she had in mind. I thought she (cat) has nice eyes.
After a couple of days of following her around and getting hissed at (cat), I caught her on the couch in front of the window.
This was still using the Canon EF-S60mm f/2.8 Macro USM lens. I just discovered that I could step back a few feet with it and still get a nice shot.
Mother is happy/cat couldn't care less.
