Enjoying the spring

by Heike April. 21, 2018 1865 views

Spring has finally arrived and when I am on my balcony, I often see Puffy, the neighbours-cat checking out his territory or taking a sunbath. He is really a handsome little guy, and the way he is posing for me, when I come with my camera, let me think, he knows that very well.

This is the ultimate tribute to cats. Absolutely amazing and beautiful. There's a sense of lightness here that I love a lot. Congrats Heike cat

blush Many thanks Antonio ! Puffy is a really professional model. I'm sure, he has a sedcard. smile

Blame the photographer not the model. I'm sure your pictures made him justice smile

You really did Puffy credit here. Great work

1 year, 11 months ago Edited
Heike Replied to Berckmans Peter 1 year, 11 months ago

Thank you, Peter. It really looks, like he likes to be photographed. All the other neighbour-cats even run away, or they run directly in front of the lens, so that it is impossible, to focus them. smile

Heidi Egerman 1 year, 11 months ago

All of these are great, but I especially like the first shot. Depth of field is great. You have really captured Puffy well.

Thanks Jay ! He is the only cat, who don't run away, when I come with the camera.  Seems he enjoys the posing.smile

Jay Boggess Replied to Heike 1 year, 11 months ago

My pleasure!

Did you bribe him with treats, in the past???

It's a good way to lure them for photographic purposes!

1 year, 11 months ago Edited
Heike Replied to Jay Boggess 1 year, 11 months ago

Sure he get treats, but during that shooting he didn't. He is a natural little model, I think.
The other 2 cats don't want to pose, no matter whether they get treats.  I think, it maybe has to do with the natural behaviour of cats. Cats (and also dogs) don't like it, if somebody stare at them. Maybe they perceive the camera as an large eye. grinning

Die Nachbarskatze - wirklich ein hübsches Fotomodell Wissen die Nachbarnw enigstens, dass es solche tollen Fotos gibt. Wenn's meine Katze wäre, würde ich die Bilder zumindest ausdricken wollen!

1 year, 11 months ago Edited
Heike Replied to Sigrid Strohschneider-Laue 1 year, 11 months ago

Danke schhön ! Nee, die Nachbarn wissen nichts von den Fotos. Die Grundstücke sind durch eine riesige Hecke getrennt, lediglich im Winter sieht man hier und da mal schemenhaft irgendwelche Gestalten. Eine direkte Verbindung zwischen den Grundstücken gibt es nur für Katzen, wie es scheint. Die könnten auf der Strasse an mir vorbeilaufen und ich wüßte nicht, das sie die Nachbarn sind. Witzigerweise habe ich mal mit der Frau am Telefon gesprochen. Als Puffy hier regelmässig in der Gegend auftauchte, befürchtete ich, es ist ein Streuner, der evtl. von jmd. gesucht wird. Da habe ich ihn mal mit dem Chip-Reader gescannt und seine Nummer bei Tasso auf der Registierungsseite eingegeben. Da kam sein Steckbrief hoch und ich habe Tasso gebeten, mal bei den Besitzern nachzufragen, ob sie ihn vermissen. Daraufhin hat Tasso denen meine Tel.Nummer gegeben und die Besitzerin rief mich an, um mir zu sagen, das er regelmässig nach Hause kommt. Während des Gesprächs stellten wir dann fest, das die Grundstücke aneinander grenzen. smile Da wunderte mich dann auch nicht mehr, das er das Gebiet hier, samt meiner Wohnung und meinem Balkon, als sein Revier betrachtet.smile
