    The Requisite Cat (Kitty) Photo thread

    I kind of understand though. They were coasting along in life and then suddenly there are 6 burly guys stamping around the house ripping the place apart and putting everything into boxes, all Atom's hiding places are gone in one afternoon. And then he is 'kidnapped' into the loud noisy driving...

    We recently moved to a new neighbourhood. After a few days of hiding under the bed, Atom has started to relax and starting to explore the new neighbourhood at night. Of course, also exploring the new house, inside and outside. The new house has timber...

    Nyuk nyuk. Atom spent all of his first months of his life in a cage, at the floor level of a room with no windows at the animal shelter, where there were cages from floor to (almost) ceiling of other cats. So I don't think he had ever seen the outside, I know he had definitely never seen...

    One of my photos of Jadey was a finalist in the I Shot It photo comp, along with a different photo of Keesha in the dog category. http://www.i-shot-it.com/photo-competition-results.php?pcid=541db630757f0

    Black and white, or monochrome photos of people

    Joshua Redman The photos were taken with my cheap telephoto on the Sony A7. After finishing his solo, Joshua sat down towards the side of the stage in the dark while the rest of his quartet played on. I went to the other side of the concert hall so that I could get a front shot instead of a...

    Thanks, it's been a great lens. Wondering if I should give the new Mitakon (spelling?) a go.

    You've got some nice rustic stairs there. Very photogenic. The cat's photogenic too.

    Black & White, monotone and sepia

    Quiche definitely has a sense of humour which is magic for a street shooter. I'm curious, does your camera black out momentarily like a DSLR when you press the shutter?

    Love this one. What's the story? Did you know him or was it a complete stranger reacting to you and your camera?

    But I love this photo of Jadey which kind of sums up our nightly adventures when the rest of the world is asleep and everything grinds to a halt, and the streets are completely ours to roam for a few quiet hours.

    Sometimes we meet other cats in the neighourhood who are cautious but also intensely curious of me the human, Keesha the dog, and Jadey the cat walking together in the middle of the night. This little teenage cat-kitten followed us in the shadows.

    I clicked through your link and bought it along with another book I've had in my Amazon cart for a while.

    Magpies can be manipulative bastards.

    I was wondering what garlic had to do with a story of friendship between a magpie and a farmer which spurred me to look up the book. I like reading about stories that describe man's interactions with nature but I've found that quite often there is a tragic or sad ending. Such is the way the...

    I've never had any bird swoop at me. Humans can be really stupid though, did you hear about the shark cull in WA?

    Magpies can be manipulative bastards.

    I was still amazed by how intelligent the wild turkeys were. I was equally fascinated to read about how they prepared and filmed the program.

    Magpies can be manipulative bastards.

    I've been fascinated by ravens and crows since reading raven biologist Bernd Heinrich's books many years ago. As an aside, if you haven't seen this documentary 'My Life As A Turkey', I highly recommend it. Highly educational and surprisingly quite touching...

    Magpies can be manipulative bastards.

    This is fascinating. They certainly exhibited crow-like intelligence today despite being a different species.

    Magpies can be manipulative bastards.

    I learnt two new things today - the different terms for a bunch of magpies, and the fact that the Australian magpies are a different species... but they're still part of the corvidae family aren't they?

    Magpies can be manipulative bastards.

    Took Keesha and Jadey out for a walk. I saw a bunch ('murder' just doesn't sound right) of magpies. Actually the magpies saw us first and they started strolling, STROLLING at a leisurely pace to cross the road while making a racket. The local cat, to whom the street belongs to, heard the...

    Very sad to hear. They're family dammit. It's always a huge loss when it's time for them to go.

    Atom is the one who likes the high vantage points. He's young and energetic and doesn't mind jumping up high. I took Jadey on a little trip last night, she's never been before. I shall post photos soon.
