As for dislike of the camera...does your camera have a beam to help it autofocus? My newest point and shoot has that function. It puts out a red laser when you go to take a picture. Jersey kept running and hiding every time I took a picture until I turned it off. It's called the AF-assist Beam. Just a suggestion.
Nice picture. When I tried to take Tucker's picture over the holidays he was turning his head too. I think he has figured out that when I hold the small silver thing a bright light comes and he doesn't like that at all.
