Interestingness - Top 500 (October 25, 2005 #320)
I was trying to take some good shots of our precious kitty Bonnabelle in natural light. I still call her a kitty even though she's 13 years old. She's very special to us because she's had diabetes for over 3 years, so we have to give her insulin shots every day. She's still incredibly healthy and vibrant. As I was shooting, a bird flew overhead and I happened to get this shot of her watching it.
Added to the Cream of the Crop pool as my most interesting photo!
To My Cat
HALF loving-kindliness and half disdain,
Thou comest to my call serenely suave,
With humming speech and gracious gestures grave,
In salutation courtly and urbane;
Yet must I humble me thy grace to gain,
For wiles may win thee though no arts enslave,
And nowhere gladly thou abidest save
Where naught disturbs the concord of thy reign.
Sphinx of my quiet hearth! who deign’st to dwell
Friend of my toil, companion of mine ease,
Thine is the lore of Ra and Rameses;
That men forget dost thou remember well,
Beholden still in blinking reveries
With sombre, sea-green gaze inscrutable.
