Check out a tiny tabby stalker in the wild! Prowling in the Summer sun.
Don’t worry though Toulouse didn’t get his ‘prey’. He sneaked quietly across the lawn and kept his eye firmly on the Cabbage White butterfly but it flew away faster than the tabby prowler could run.
I had my telephoto lens firmly focused on his gaze and this is the best of the series of shots I took. It was a great use of sport/burst mode.
Who thought something so small could move so fast, but it did! Toulouse scampered off afterwards shrugging off his hunting fail as the weather is still wonderfully warm here and the garden his perfect playground.
I have cropped the photo so the tabby is the centre of attention and his look leads your eye to the pale butterfly. I swear the little creature is looking at him and waiting for the perfect moment to fly away.
Do you get to chase critters? If you enjoy a catio, can a butterfly or something exciting and buzzy get in?
