When I tried to sneak up on the cat to get a photo he grabbed his catch and ran off - then realised he could go no further and turned around and ran to the side into a store room.
V2 - the full frontal but somewhat out of focus - I put it up just to share Smile
Thanx to everyone who voted and commented on my McCaw parrots yesterday also for the modifications - it is amazing what tecnology can achieve Smile A special thanx to Carol and Netta for their UA 's - it is greatly appreciated Smile

Wonderful pictures - I love black cats! The sunlight on it's back end adds to it. We had one that divided a pheasant into parts and when I caught her she had a wing sideways in her mouth which wouldn't fit through the cat flap!!! And as for baby rabbits..............
