Pictures of snow

I’ve been going through a bunch of my older pictures, and it turns out that I take a lot of pictures of snow. Maybe it’s because I grew up with snow half the year, maybe I like the crispness of the snow, or maybe (since it is around for half the year) it’s just what I have to photograph!

Snow is tricky, though. White on white? A photographers nightmare! It can be hard to try and somehow work contrast in the shot, and it can be impossible to fix after the fact. That won’t stop me from trying! 🙂

Shhhhh! It’s cat hunting season!

*hushed voice, with a slight British accent*

Today on Cat Hunters, we are looking at capturing the elusive house cat. The house cat, Felis catus, can be hard to locate. They are adept at finding obscure hiding places, such as under (or in) couches, the highest shelf in the bathroom closet, or even in the ceiling. Sometimes, they hide so well they forget how they got there and have trouble finding their way out!

In an effort to capture a local specimen, we set out a humane cat trap. The trap was so appealing, the target cat was there within moments, investigating.

And, 15 seconds later, success!

“Why are you staring at me like that?”

“Yea, you caught me. Now what?”

Meowsie was NOT amused

Daryn decided to toss the kitty into the newly fallen snowbank. This picture is about a second after she was tossed in and about a second before she ran back into the house.
