Spooky is calm and mellow and a typical American short haired black kitty cat. He answers to no one except when Leia chats back and forth with him. This month he will turn 13! :( Those kitty cat years don't mean a thing to this charming man). Suuuper fast shutter speed shots (1/500 or 1/1000) at f1.4-this lens continues to shine in low light. Love it.
