MANCAT MONDAY: PORTRAITS OF DYLAN

Well, it's another Mancat Monday and today I have decided to focus just on Dylan because I've managed to get some rather stunning shots of him lately.  I also like to highlight each of my cats separately.  Together they are a handsome trio, but separately their unique beauty really shines.

Speaking of shining, here's Dylan sniffing one of the chairs on our front porch.  The late afternoon sun lit him up under his chin.  I wonder if one of those dastardly squirrels had been sitting on that chair. 


And several seconds later, another shot in light and shadow.


And talk about shadows!  I love this one because of the perfect shadow of Dylan's kitty ears.


Here, Dylan lounges on the front walk.  It's a great spot for watching squirrels.


Or to do a little mama-watching!


Mama watches Dylan right back!  In fact, I got quite up close and personal in this one.


Dylan has decided to lie in wait for those pesky squirrels in another location.  He is easily startled, and those owl ears are his trademark.


Dylan's portraits wouldn't be complete without some pictures of him in the back yard.  Here he is staking out the fence.  He has spotted his sister, Button, on the other side (you may recall she's our next door neighbour).


Before he scales the fence, he gives mama a backward glance.

Dylan really has the art of the backward glance down pat.


It's gotten to the level of an "over-the-shoulder smoulder"!


What do you think ladycats?

We're swooning here, too (except Connor--he's giving you a manly fist-bump). Mama especially love the way the sun shines through Dylan's ears and turns them pink.

You are quite handsome Dylan. I am not a lady cat, but I do know handsome when I see it ;)

Well, Dylan, since your mom asked the ladycats what we thought, I (Lola) bumped the boys off and took over! And I think you look very handsome! I think you are very cute with your owl ears too!

Ah, he is a prince. A charming one.

Sparkle said...

I think Dylan has a bit of ambivalence about being trailed by the paparazzi! He clearly wants to get back to his squirrel watching undisturbed. It IS tough to be in the limelight!
