Angles, Odonata, and Orb Cat

Carmi's Thematic Photographic 212 is At An Angle. This is my 2nd bite of the apple.

Did you think there would be no critters? Of course there are critters.

Blue Dasher:

Familiar Bluet:

Columbus Cat with orb:

That's the cat that sailed the ocean blue in 1492? It's looking pretty good for its age. Must be the orb.

city angles. sky angles.
fancy winged critters!!!!

but that me those laser eyes...did he just come out of that orb? or will he be travelling in that, back to where he came from!?

or, maybe it's his exercise ball? he's just damn tired from pushing that things around the yard?!

hey, have a good weekend!

Indeed, A.K., and thanks for getting me to add alt text to the last two pics.

Laura, I see that cat in that yard fairly often. I think he/she/it/Felis catus is associated with the orb in ways that humans cannot understand.

Phew, cat farted.

Laura said...

Excuse me?
I'm appalled. (but in a good way of course!)

Have you attempted to communicate telepathically with either orb or cat?

I want to take a bite of that peachy sky! Great angles ;-)

Thunder - my "roofs" pic shows the houses built up against a small rock bluff, the road went uphill for quite a way. But up on top of the bluff is another, modern-looking building. Noway is VERY mountainous, and most towns, like Tromso, are on the coast. Tromso is also way above the Arctic Circle. Gilly

Thanks people!

P.S. B^4, I saw the cat in the yard this afternoon and tried to communicate, but the kitty kept on snoozing.

Elegant angles from the Dasher and Bluet.

That second shot's a rocket, and the third is the nuclear blast. You're not fooling me, WOPR.

Columbus Cat with the orb - love that one.

Laura said...

Oh. Ok.
I see what's going on here. Everyone else is too mature to notice the name of the dragon fly except moi.

Pfft.. whateves.....

Fruit flies and falcons, too, Laura.

Sunflower maggot fly, Strauzia longipennis

The Australian Hobby, Falco longipennis

I'm stealing those clouds as soon as I'm done yelling at them.

I await the cat-cuddling-orb video on YouTube.

Carmi Levy said...

I like that there's always a critter view when I visit. Can't forget our animal friends, after all!

Lisa Golden said...

I love the drama in that first photo. Nice shot!

As for the orb, well, our cat is missing his orbs. Poor kitty.

Rita said...

Nice skyline and I love that pink sky.

Your cats eye are a bit eerie even though I see the same seen with my own cats often.
