Sometimes, if I wait patiently long enough, I get a good picture of Sissy or our other grey cat, Smokey.
Sitting on her perch, atop a wing-backed chair in our sun room, Sissy likes to stare out the windows. Birds, squirrels and other outside items of interest are her entertainment.
Sissy was interested in being stroked or scratched in just the right places, and not posing for me. I complied with her vocal requests and then stood and waited. Once she realized that I wasn’t going anywhere, or going to stroke her anymore, she went back to watching the windows. That was my clue to get busy.
I raised the camera and waited.
Moments passed and something caught her eye. That’s when I got this one.
Patience pays off.
