‘Skunk Tail’ photographed by Crystal Moreno, USA – 2016 iCatCare Cat Naps photography competition winner
“My dad nicknamed him cola de zorillo which means skunk tail in Spanish. He’s part of a litter we found in our backyard – only a few survived and he was one of them. My dad was working in the backyard and Skunk tail was sleeping soundly in between the dried up plants that we needed to throw out – the composition and lighting was just perfect so I went and grabbed my camera and ran back out. Shortly after I took this picture he woke up and ran off.”
This picture came in very early in the competition and stayed a favourite all through because of its lovely composition and lighting.
