Daily Photo: The Huntress

Just look for the eyes.
Just look for the eyes.

On a quiet afternoon the garden was full of excitement.

You can't see her, surely.
You can’t see her, surely.

For several years before moving in here Mimi hunted for food for her babies. Now that she’s a pampered princess she still likes to indulge now and then, just to keep in shape.

Something is over there.
Something is over there.

Nothing escapes her notice.

Well disguised.
Well disguised.

Capturing these photos between the blades of grass and sometimes confusing light and shadows and moving blades of grass was my own hunting expedition for the afternoon.

Just Playing

But she still has a great time with toys! Someone donated a few toys her cat didn’t like, and I moved most to the kitten room but all the house panthers were immediately absorbed by this cat track with a ball swirling around the bottom that makes bird chirps when you smack it, and one in the top that just goes around, and feathers out of the top, just for good measure. Mimi is feeling pretty darned well, and just because she does (and I still find it a miracle), and because she was once a primarily outdoor cat endlessly breeding but has fully embraced being a pampered and loved house panther I filmed her having a great time playing with the birdie track ball. Watch it below or on watch it on YouTube.

    Very pretty photos, the grass really makes the green eyes stand out.

      Thank you! I was so excited to be able to catch there, all manually focused lying on my belly in kind of dim light holding the telephoto lens and trying not to let my hands shake. It was all worth it!
