Camera Critters

Sunday again, and what better way to start the day than to enjoy some
Camera Critters?

I have two different pictures for you this week.

The first is Rinli, a large but active cat, perching on top of the nearly 6 foot tall fence at the end of our garden.
The planks might be as much as 1 cm thick (less than ½ inch). He's resting his front paws on a support post, but most of him is just balanced.

The second picture is of a visitor to our old bird table yesterday.
A young robin, just fledged and still well speckled, waiting for mum or dad to come back with some food. He's still too young to have taken to the idea that he can find his own. Hey, there's some behind you - and at your feet!

Visit our host Misty Dawn for her great pictures, and the dedicated Camera Critters site for other participants.

I wish I could balance like that, the robin is really sweet :-)

For once, Rinli has his back to the bird table.

Great balancing act. Is the cat watching the bird? Watch out little birdie!

Blue said...

That's one clever puss to balance so - only hope he wasn't watching the blackbird fledgling!

I love to see cats on fences, infact anywhere really! So photogenic!

Wonderful photos. I'm always amazed at how cats can make themselves comfortable in what seem like the most awkward and strange positions and locations. He's a beautiful cat. Sweet bird too. Guess the bird is lucky that Rinli is busy elsewhere...

Very cute critters.

Gretchen said...

Is the cat watching the bird for lunch?

A good look out place for Rinli, the baby bird is so cute.

Rosebud said...

I do adore birds. Looks like a happy kitty there too. I'm surprised the cat's not trying to taste the bird.

Misty Dawn said...

Hey, I posted a baby Robin pic this week too! We must be thinking alike ;-) LOVE the cat shot - they always crack me up how they can perch in the strangest places, yet look so comfortable.
