What is this? I was going to photograph birds!
I saw this creature in the shrub that is near where birds land as they are flying to and from the feeder. At first I thought it was the kitty from next door, and I was only seeing a profile, then it looked at me, and I took the picture above. It sat still looking at me for a very long time and then slowly slunk away, and I discovered it was not the neighbor kitty after all. This was much more redish and has a tail. The neighbor kitty is called "Bobby" for a reason. ; )
