Your Best Pet/Animal Portrait
A little while ago, we asked you to share your favorite pet and animal portraits in our Flickr Group. We received loads of amazing photos from your archives, and you proceeded to tell us a little story about the photos. Here are some of the best.

"This is a new behavior for my cats. They've adopted my sock drawer as a hangout. If I'm getting dressed, there are at least two cats in there—sometimes more—fighting for a spot!"

"This parrrot, an African Grey, lives at the Jungle Gardens in Sarasota Florida. He watched me walk round him, posing the whole time. He stopped only after I took his picture. He did not sign a release. ;)"

"Thank you B&H. I love my Canon 50mm f1.2 because I can get great shots like this of my Bruno. :)"

"Merlin is an awesome dog—very intelligent, and a great friend. He'll usually lay with his front paws crossed... Why? Not sure, but when he cracks a half-smile, it's hilarious. He also attracts attention with his eyes—one blue, one brown. Quite a unique character."

"This is Sámara, my daschund puppy. I took this photo the day my Nikon D300s arrived. I was so excited to finally buy it! I was outside on my balcony reading the manual and playing with the settings, when I noticed Sámara was sitting just a few feet from me, paying close attention to what I was doing. Inmediately after, I took this photo. Only seconds later she ran to lie next to me."

"This here is Captain, or Cap for short. This is the face he makes after I've taken too many consecutive pictures of him."

"This is Chubby, she's my sister's owner. Yup, she's the empress at her house! she can get a "little" crazy sometimes, especially when i take away her favorite toy. when people look at her they're like "awwwww" but they don't know her for real. that's why i uploaded this video she could go on like this forever. seriously."
