Camera Critters no.1

I was just wondering what would be the perfect time to post the-crazy-cat-chasing-for-a-fly-and-the-subsequent-result, when I got an invitation for Camera Critters . Thanks, Misty!
Have a great Sunday, everybody!
PS: for the picture yesterday, yes, you were all right: it's a train wash! It was the first time I have seen such a thing. Picture taken on the way from Cluj to Ploiesti, Romania.
Soooo...the cat story... We were in the study, working on the computer. When I say "we" I mean Peter, the cat, and I. All of a sudden, he jumps from behind my screen (his favourite place if I work), and starts running. I jumped for my camera too, expecting some action. Oh, my, if I only knew the result...
After waiting for a while, and me being bored, since there was no action.... he 's up! Oh, wow, motion , action, great shots, hubby will be thrilled to see this!But I didn't see this coming! Peter hanging on my (hubby's!) favourite curtain!!!The result? Take a look! Hubby's reaction: "Peter, you, Miststueck!"... but nothing more :)....
PS: hubby has no clue about these photos... shhhhhhhhhhh! And no, Peter did not catch the fly in the end :))!

  10. Ohhhhh Noooooo! It's a horrible shame when something gets ruined and you didn't even catch what you were after ;-( My puppy chews/eats everything... nothing is safe around her! These are great action shots you got, but I'm sorry about your curtain.

    Great post!

  11. Is it horrible that I'm giggling. I mean, because i've been there. The "in the air action shot" is the best.

    My critter is here if you want to check him out.
