Photographing a Lazy Cat in the Sun

Seriously, you wonder, what is the fascination with Penny the Cat? Well, like most cats she is fiercely independent, aggressive at times (last night she attacked my toes in bed…my dogs don’t do that thank goodness), she likes my fly tying materials as much as I do and when she slows down into her lazy mode I seem to relate to her lounging in the sunlight. Turn away if you hate cats because this is a celebration of a lazy cat…Penny the Cat.

Ok, the last shot gives some indication that her alert button is activated.

Outdoor Safety: Rattle Snake in Tree

Saw this on FB from the superb Texas Hill Country (great photography and more) and was reminded of one time on the Deschutes River when a friend pointed out a rattler in a tree near the water’s edge. I was oblivious that time, but some thirty years later I never fail to look upward too.

Brian A. Burgoyne sent this in a while back, “this rattlesnake was hanging out in the tree right by the squirrel feeder…South Austin right on the Manchaca border…suburbs!” (Texas Hill Country/FB)

Bears and rattle snakes seem to like bird and squirrel feeders. Different food sources no doubt. So, some consider it more rare for a rattle snake to be in a tree, they (the various species) have a history of doing so.
