After all the heat and opulence of Abu Dhabi, I thought we would return to the coolness of a Slovak winter to watch kitty sneaking up on an old spinning wheel lying in the snow. We found kitty as an abandoned orphan only a few weeks old.
adorable! wonderful shot here Michael -- i just love the sly moods of cats! :)

The textures in the snow and all of the shadow play make this special.

Such a beautiful image. The cat appears to be sneaking up on whatever that is. I used to have a black cat. They're gorgeous.

@Betty: That's a long time. thanks for the great comment, Betty.
Ohhhhhhhh, first I want to right the spinning wheel and then pick up the kitty, but that would spoil your wonderful composition, Michael, and leave too many footprints in the pristine snow. I really like this.

A cooling shot which we all need this time of the year. Today is going to be our hottest so far this year - 35C. What a cute kitty and I love the stealth in his step. Great capture Michael.

@Marion: I certainly need cooling too. Here in Saudi Arabia, it is still above 40C. Many thanks, Marion.
Black cat for good luck :) Looks like it's going hunting.
14 Aug 2008 7:38pm
@Observing: Practising hunting I guess. Thanks, Mike.
