[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
That's the way cats are. They hang around beating around the bush until they get what they want.
And then what happens? More kittens!

Fortunately Paulinha only had one this time and it already has a family to go to :)

Shot with maximum zoom otherwise I wouldn't be able to get one single shot because this one was super cautious!

Thank you for viewing.

They do this so well...
Amazing eye colour and determination in the pose.


Hi Lurdes,
I like this capture. The blue eye is stunning against the plant.
Gives me a real feel for how they hunt.

Hi Lurdes,
That's a cat's job and you managed to capture it perfectly!
Very good focusing on the cat's blue eye.
Nice light and a perfect crop.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Salut Lurdes,

Belle image prise sur le vif... Bravo


Great capture :-) nice balance, cute as a button

Bom dia lurdes,
Magnifica prática de um dos seus temas preferidos, gatos.
O felino parece exercitar uma das suas importantes características, a dissimulação.
Boas definição, cores e composição.

Hi Lurdes,
Those eyes are very mesmerizing.... A perfectly timed photo. Great lighting and nice details. Well done ! TFS Julie

Very good shot. The blue eye monitering everyone, a bit like NSA. Just like Edward Snowden said.^^


A decisive moment well timed.
Love this kind of attitude, just before the attack action ... and after a moment of observation.
I like the colors but especially this instant caught before jumping.
If only I could be a black panther ...
