Photo-bomb!

It’s been so long since my last post that I don’t think I’ll even try to recapitulate in words… Instead, I give you a photo-bomb that pretty much covers the entire time! So sit back, relax, and scroll on…

Long time no see…

I knew these were around, and I’ve had high hopes of seeing them at the feeding this winter but I’ve been disappointed in that regard – until now.

As I stood by the feeder today, raking up spilled seeds and droppings from the lawn, I was suddenly surrounded by merry chirps and a flock of long-tailed bushtits who’d come to see what I was turning up. They hopped around, feeding from the remains in the grass, and were pointedly uninterested in my presence apart from hinting that I was standing in their food. I apologized and went in to fetch the camera…

They did take off when I left, but only to settle down again within seconds, and as I returned they posed sweetly for a few shots 🙂

The cat models

I’ve mentioned the cat calendar I’m working on, and I’ve had a few photo sessions for it by now. Obviously, I want to save the intended calendar shots for later, but I’d like to introduce some of my models nonetheless!

Meeting these cats – be they shy or affectionate – makes me think it’s a good thing I have Lo, who doesn’t want to share me. If I didn’t, with all the space and peace available around here, and all the abandoned cats available out there, I’d be a fully fledged crazy cat lady by now.

It’s only a matter of time…
