Tulip Tuxedo

As I photographed this bed of purple and ivory tulips, I didn't realize at first that I was under observation. When I took this shot, a watcher was in it.

Moving position, I noticed my watcher, watching me.

And here he or she is in close up, looking at me. A black and white tuxedo cat was resting comfortably at the back of this tulip bed, an absolute beauty. Most of you know I'm fond of cats, as I deem them the ultimate form of life on the planet. 

This one would be a local from one of the nearby houses, and I was content to photograph the cat and the tulips.

This one did blend in fairly well with the tulips, and I moved on.


  1. Such a beautiful flower bed of tulips. I love the deep magenta color and the kitty cat enjoying its surroundings.
