Critters And Tulips

I returned again to Commissioners Park at Dow's Lake a few days back, early in the morning to see how things were coming along. Photographers were present amid the rows of tulips, as we can see here and in posts to come.


Someone came out from her nearby home to say hello. I think I've seen this particular supreme life form here before.


The two ducks on the other side of the path kept an eye on her, but she was far more interested in attention from passing lowly humans.

  1. Lovely photos, William, and the ones that capture my heart the most this time are this gorgeous black cat and the ducks. :)

    @Tanya: it was such a cute kitty.

    @Red: I'm sure she's spent quite a bit of time tip toeing through the tulips.

    @Lowell: it's quite different at high noon.

    @Whisk: they were!

    @Sharon: this one was.

    @Cloudia: I wouldn't call her that!

  17. Beautiful tulips but even more gorgeous supreme life form ☺ I think the ducks were right to be wary, pussycats can be unpredictable and.. fast!

  18. Lovely photos again.
    By the way, did you remember spit three times if the black cat went over the road. The black cat knows the accident.

  27. Is the cat smelling or eating tulip? ;)

  29. Those who don't believe cats are a supreme life form, should just ask them!
    Actually, if cats could talk to us, they probably wouldn't...
    Really nice photos William! Even better when enlarged.
