Portrait of a Hamster



This Syrian Hamster was a pet of mine a few years back. Her name was Ginger and she lived about a year and a half. I took this photo not long after I had fixed up my Canon AE-1P... I still didn't have a macro lens and I was using a desk lamp to light this. I got lucky and captured this shot... I think it looks like a real portrait and if you have ever tried photographing rodents at close range you know how hard it can be.

This is one of my peronal favorites. I hope you enjoy it too...

(edit) - This was exhibited at the 2007 Orange County Fair in Costa Mesa, Ca.
