Took awhile to get an idea for this challenge, then a good bit of driving to get the shots! The bench is located near the mill in Spencerville, it's several welded-together iron wagon wheels. The feral tom lives on a friend's property. Both the bench and cats were backup shots, but so glad I got them or I wouldn't have an entry. Don't you just want to run over and pet him? The filthy look he gave me the moment he saw the lens was/is just priceless ;-)

Shot handheld, used Siggy for the bench and the 300 for the friendly kitteh.

I adore this!!! The cat is so incredibly well done -- the rest is fun and interesting -- but I want to spend all my time staring at the cat. :)

Huge, huge congrats on an awesome photo and top 10!

LOL - I love this one. I completely imagine most cats doing this - haunting us for a bit after they die!
