Feral Cat in Catnip- Study of Greens

Yesterday’s flowering pears prompted me to go out in the backyard this evening,  see how the Redbud tree is coming along.  Maybe continue with a theme. Lots of tiny buds but not quite open.  Ginny planted the tree in memory of my parents a couple of years ago.  The tree made it through all the snow and is flourishing.  And I look over in the raggedy herb garden and see the feral cat from next door, chewing on some catnip, a perennial that returned without tending. Took a shot but too far away to be interesting.  Edged over to the backporch steps and caught the green eyes looking right at me, catnip in front. Some of you may remember a post of the cat from the snowstorm(2-16-10).

One of the ones we caught and had "fixed" at Animal Rescue League. Note left ear tip to mark this fact.

    Love the “greens”!!! (Nice after that long stretch of “whites”!) The cat seems to be posing – and what an expression! It’s green eyes fit right in with the other greens. (Good that it is “fixed”.) Great picture!!!

    Yes, this is amazing how you captured the greens (especially the cats eyes) and I like the contrast of the green with a few bare branches.

    We saw you shooting last night and were wondering what we’d see here. Great pic! And so great that at least some of them are fixed. Thank you so much for doing that!
