With the temperatures in the lower to mid-fifties this morning I was thankful it was at least sunny out. Heading out to face the day, the rays of sunshine coming through the windshield warmed my old bones rather nicely. As I arrived at my first stop I spotted a cat cleaning her self in a sun drenched spot on the walkway leading to the front porch. It seems the sun was warming her up rather nicely as well.
As I was preparing to leave I noticed the cat was still in the warm cocoon of light courtesy of the sun. Being who I am, I could not pass up the chance to take a picture of this content and now clean cat. I snapped off the above shot and was about to review it when she looks up at me. Amazing! Her eyes where orbs of golden sunshine! As I adjusted the cameras ISO and was setting the shutter speed she looked away. ( Dear Mr Bird, Thanks for landing in view of this cat while I was trying to get the shot). After using its spidey senses to detect a predator staring at it a few yards away the bird flew off and she looked back at me. The following picture is the result and worth the ninety seconds it took to get the shoot.
