This is our cat, Dory! She was hanging around while I snapped photos around our yard, so…
Actually, I say she’s our cat, but lately it’s not so clear. We’ve had her since she was a kitten. She’s an outside cat with a generous food plan and comfy place to sleep – previously on our back porch, now in our garage. Still, she has a tendency to disappear on a regular basis – sometimes for a few days, sometimes for weeks at a time. We figure she has another spot in our rural area that she considers her second home.

This duck wasn’t content to be photographed in a normal duck squat. She wanted to show off one of her more stylish features.
This wasn’t a momentary stretch. I have several frames of her posing like this. She wasn’t warming herself in the sun either, because the skies were overcast. She is standing on the edge of a small waterfall at the Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary in Green Bay, WI.

A ground squirrel finds a rare treat and makes quick work of the cheese popcorn dropped by a passerby.
This was taken at the the Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary in Green Bay, Wisconsin. If you’re into these little critters, there are an abundance of them along the pathways.

This is one of those photos that seems like it could support some inspirational quote or Bible verse added. I like the image, as is, and have been able to resist the temptation so far, but I’m feeling a little weak. If someone were to suggest the right quote or verse, my resolve might crumble.

I’d been itching to take some photos. It had been a few days since I had taken the time to pull my camera out of the case. As I often do, I just took my camera for a walk around my yard. It was the end of the day…near sunset. Our cat, Dorry, was an easy target. The soft light and low angle of the sun added a nice quality to this image.

It’s all in the eyes. This ring-tailed lemur obviously had his mind on other things. This is one picture, I think , is worth a thousand or so words.
What do you imagine he’s thinking about? Is he working calculus problems in his head? Fondly remembering a long lost love? Thinking ahead of an upcoming vacation on a secluded, tropical island? Fresh bananas?
I don’t know exactly what he was thinking about. Your guess is as good as mine.

I find the natural markings of zebras irresistible. The crisp, black and white, zig and zag are a magnet to my eyes.
I deliberately over-cropped this guy’s image to emphasize the pattern – the genius of natural design.
I added a little twist of my own to the natural design of the zebra’s stripes to create the “thing” below. (I don’t know what to call it.) It’s actually the neck and short mane of a zebra (original picture on the right) mirrored left and right and up and down.
Reminds me of those old, psychological, ink-blot tests. What do you think it looks like? I wonder what it might reveal about me, for creating it?
Something about that high-contrast, black and white…
