Good Morning to you all

I trust that you are well?

Thank you for you wonderful comments and votes following yesterdays upload of 'The Dog in the Pink Hat'. A further mentioned going to Kuvaillija (Jukka), Lifesnapper (John), Ali63 (Ali) and Jenny-D (Jenny) for presenting me with the most welcomed User Awards.

Todays upload was captured whilst rooting about in a nearby farmyard looking for possible subjects in which to photograph "With the owners permission" of course. I came across the wonderful short-haired Tabby who was snuggled down in a bail of hay. However after trying to approach her, she let out a huge hiss and stood up with her back arched and let me know quite clearly to not come any further.

I hope that you all have a great day

Regards Nathan GrinGrinGrin

They can inflict some serious damage with their claws Nathan, as I have found out in the past, but I still love them, you do not own a cat they own you, the slight soft focus is excellent. Have a great week end.
