POEM...
Domestication is but a myth.
Across ten thousand years the jungle calls
I hunt by tooth and claw,
beneath my sudden rush my prey still falls.

The lion is my kin,
and though my antelope is merely mouse,
upon my head there sits a crown.
For I am still the King in my own house.

Poem kindly written by Jeff Sasek (jsas)

Not a strong camouflage, but very nice picture overall. I like the way background is blured in contrast with sharp image of cat. Nice colors...9

Nice job of making into a kind of impressionistic, yet realistic shot. I like the composition & the colors.

great bokeh. B/W might have done better to emphasize the camouflage-ness, though I think the color adds to the photo here. To me, not so much an instance of camouflage as concealment.

Great picture and great effect on the 'garden'. I am interested in learning how that was created.
