Squirrel versus Cat

squirrel on my window being watched by a cat

This squirrel jumped up on the window sill the other day. Carla (one of our cats) was utterly enthralled. The squirrel didn’t seem to mind her staring and me photographing. Perhaps it was thinking “This is *double glazed* innit? You ain’t getting through that in a hurry my friends”. Or perhaps it couldn’t smell us so assumed we weren’t real. Or all it could see was a reflection of itself.

It flicked around long enough for me to get a few snaps, but not long enough for me to properly adjust aperture, white balance, shutter speed, ISO etc. More photos here.
