I’d read about this before and wanted to give it a shot. So these two pics are my first attempts at light writing photos.
Now that’s a piece of tail
slowly I turn
folks that remember abbot and Costello, the three stooges or I love lucy may remember this skit. But in kitty language stalking is truly inch by inch. My little beastie (who would actually never eat a bird, unlike snoopy hunter), is attempting to sneak up on the bird – which by the way – was on top of the playhouse that the kitties can’t reach. I’m feeling this to be a chewie week in posting 🙂 so ready up for kitty pics.
HDR, not so good with moving subjects
I knew it wouldn’t go well, because on my camera the bracket exposer takes about one second. That does not seem long – but to a cat and a wood pecker, staying still that long will simply not happen. Luckily my software has a ghost removal feature, but it does come at a loss of quality. So here are 2 shots, kitty and wood pecker. I added a paint quality to Chewie because of the blurriness of the photo – hoping for a soft quality.
Safety first … keeping an eye out for cats
So this two-legged creature is very nice. They put out food for us birds – and nice food too – no shells just seed! but then she will come out with 3 four-footed creatures. I have seen these before and they love to chase us birds. So I have taken to following some safety procedures.
1st this is this little structure that has an opening in it I can hide in. This is very close to the food. So I come out of the tree and hop into this opening and keep an eye out for a while. When it is safe, I swoop in.
then, after I have eaten my fill (or if danger appears), this same structure has a nice bolt hole I can hop into where the four-legged ones can’t get at me.
