There is no rhyme or reason to this collection of pictures.  They are just ones that I like.

I have also included some of those "lurk-alikes" called squirrels (they're always lurking and they look alike).  We have so many black ones and they all look the same from a distance.  Up close it's a different matter.

(Biggify at will!)

This was a cool shot because it was taken through the bush, which gives it a partially mottled look.
I just love the detail on his little fingernails in this picture.

Here's a different squirrel, on a different day, noshing away in the safety of the tree.
This little guy has a lot more brown on him -- you can see it on the inside of his legs and tummy.  He's quite the chubby fellow as well.  Look at those thighs!

This is a brave little nosher -- appears to be pure black with quite the luscious tail, and deft fingers.

Although you can't see any detail for this one, I really like the picture.  The little guy surprised me by just peeking around the corner of the house, close to where I was sitting.  As I said -- they're lurking everywhere!

This is Dylan watching his reality TV from the comfort of the cat bench.  The squirrel has just reached the first branch of the tree on the left.

This was taken on a bright and sunny day.  It's the shadows that I find interesting, in addition to the marked contrast between my little Domino and my behemoth Dante.

Here's Dylan on the same day.  Again, it's his shadow which I find compelling, plus the hint of Dante's tail at the bottom right of the picture.

Once again, the shadow play enhances Domino on her stroll.  I caught her mid-step, which is always kind of cute.

On a completely different day, you can see the sun is no longer shining.  The sky is overcast which makes for a totally icy effect.  Here's Dante on the long trek to the end of the driveway.

Brrrrrrr!  It's a good thing Maine Coons are built for this kind of weather.

Dylan comes to the edge of the road to see what's going on.  Neither of the mancats ventured any further.
The landscape looks so desolate.  There's also some odd reflection from the camera lens on Dante.

And on yet another day in the recent past, here's Daddy and Domino enjoying a together moment on the front porch bench.  Isn't that all kinds of cute?

So that's all I've got for today.  Enjoy your Caturday everyone!
