This was taken from across the room using a Tamron 70-300 telephoto lens set to Macro. I am a firm believer in natural light so the exposure was 3.2 seconds.
Here's a picture of our cat. Shot similarly: long lens, slow exposure. It was a lot harder to shoot
though. Loaves of bread do not get up and stalk string. Herbie isn't camera shy though, he just moves around a lot.
