Actually, Alley Cat is my barn cat. She has a job. Here she is out for a stroll trying to catch the swallows collecting hay for their nests. At night she goes on duty.

I think your cat has 2 chances:

1/ nill

2/slim

Those swallows are super fast and can turn on a dime!

Thanks, Bill, and very hard to get a decent photo of, even with the tripod.

Forgot to mention, the swallows can also give you 9 cents change off your dime.

Very nice looking cat. And the shot of a swallow scramming is amazing. If I tried it the bird would be three feet to the left of the picture.

Rafael, Annie, and Steve, Thanks very much for viewing and commentingl. I was just extremely lucky on the swallow shots, as unless I can use a really fast shutter speed, most of my shots are soft.

It looks like she is telling you to get lost and don't scare the swallows.:-):-)
