"Over here you silly fat cat"

"Over here you silly fat cat"

A local cat has been trying to find my robin's nests - this parent bird was engaged in very noisey and very brave distraction tactics. At one point she was on the ground behind the cat only five feet from it and shouting her head off.

You know me, I'm not a bird pic fan. However, I love this one. From the crystal clarity to the bird's unusual posture to the great blurred background, everything about this is great.
